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

    Welcome aboard

    As for photo taking, I can suggest that photos be taken as follows:

    IF you are using a phone:

    Find a box, about 6x6 or 8x8.
    Place the box on the table.
    Place the coin on the table, close to the base of the box.
    Place the phone on top of the box and turn on the camera app.
    Carefully slide the phone toward the edge so the camera can see the coin.
    Adjust the coin closer if need be.
    You can zoom in, but do not make the photo blurry at all.
    Make sure there is no glare on the coin, use a lamp vice flash from the phone.
    With the phone on the top of the box, you can stabilize the phone with one hand.
    Gently tap the shutter to take a photo.

    In the text area where you add a post, just to the top left , is a camera icon.
    That will toggle on/off the upload buttons.

    Photos are best saved as JPG.
    The photos on this website have to be less than 2mb each.
    You should be able to upload 8 photos per post.
    If more photos are needed, you can reply to your post and add more photos.

    After you uploaded the photos, the list appears below the UPLOAD ATTACHMENTS button. Click the area on your post where you'd like a photo to show, like below some text. Then just below the UPLOAD ATTACHMENTS button choose a photo to place where you clicked. Choose either LARGE or MEDIUM and the photo should appear in your post. If you don't add it to the post, they should appear at the bottom of your post as attachments.

    If you have a photo editing app on the phone, if need be, crop most of the background out of the photo.
    You should be able to draw a box around the coin.
    From there use the cropping tool to remove any unnecessary background.
    The cropping tool can look like a bent square.
