CONECA (pronounced: CŌ´NECA) is a national numismatic organization devoted to the education of error and variety coin collectors. CONECA focuses on many error and variety specialties, including doubled dies, Repunched mintmarks, multiple errors, clips, double strikes, off-metals and off-centers—just to name a few. In addition to its website, CONECA publishes an educational journal, The Errorscope, which is printed and mailed to members bimonthly. CONECA offers a lending library, examination, listing and attribution services; it holds annual meetings at major conventions (referred to as Errorama) around the country.

CONECA was formed through a merger of CONE and NECA in early 1983. To learn more about the fascinating HISTORY OF THE ERROR HOBBY and THE HISTORY OF CONECA, we encourage you to visit us our main site Here

  • 1955 S 1c Extremely Weak Strike

    Another 55' find. Both sides of this one (I also have others like it) seem as if it was so weakly struck, there are untouched parts of the blank showing through? The reverse is so weak that most of the details below cent are barely, if visible at all. The obverse has most of the open field areas untouched with "IBE" of LIBERTY extremely faint. Some of the others like this one also have chips where the "9" and S mint mark half filled. Common or uncommon for this year?

    It's not a weak strike. The affected areas were struck through "grease" (die crud). A common error that carries negligible value.
