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

    Greetings to all! My name is Janice and I just joined today! Yeah! I’ve been collecting coins for a good year now,
    but I’ve been going through my coin collection which I truly enjoy! Looking forward to seeing new errors, and hopefully
    I can somehow post pictures of my coin which has a cool error! Janice Sandman

      Thank you Bob! Can you help me as I cannot post more than one picture. It tells me
      the files to large or something to that effect. I’ll be most happy to email my other photos if you have
      a separate email address. I already got a positive response on my coin from Mike Diamond who
      sugges I contact John Wexler. I’ve emailed him several times, but he must be very busy or on vacation.
      I hope I hear from him soon.

        I can not help you with the upload issues. You really need to make the file size smaller. As far as the picture you posted, I do not need to see any more photos. I dressed this in your other post about the 1992D coin.

        As far as Mr. Wexler, he has some health issues and may not be able to reply to you. I am curious as to what Mike Diamond said it was.

          Hi Bob Piazza. Sorry to hear about Mr. Wexler not doing well. I was hoping to send over the pictures
          of John Wexler’s website that shows the error and says double beard with Coneca’s cross reference
          to that 1992 Pennsylvania coin listed. The error is very similar to my 1992 Denver coin. Mike said he saw positive potential and to directly get a hold of John.

            If you can post the link to John Wexler's page that says this is a doubled beard, that would do nicely. I physically went over to his site and searched both 1992 and 1992D doubled die listings. There are no doubled beards listed there.
            Also, if you are saying that 1992P and 1992D coins are showing the same anomaly, chances are that it is indeed the design, and not a doubled die.

              OK Janice...Now I am totally confused. I received the photo and link that you emailed to the other CONECA board member. That was a photo of a doubled eyelid. This entire conversation is about a doubled beard. Now I was never real good at biology, but they are not the same thing.

              I am very well aware of the supposed doubled eyelid. I originally listed it on coppercoins.com as 1992P-1DO-001. I later delisted with the following rationale:

              "Significant doubling of the eyelid to the east is seen on this variety. NOTE: After careful re-examination, it is this attributers opinion that this may not be a doubled eye at all, but rather a well placed die gouge. For now, we will leave this posted here for informational and educational purposes."

              It is still shown on the coppercoins and Wexlers web sites.

              Now...Does your 1992D coin show a doubled eyelid, or a doubled beard? The arrow certainly looks like it is the beard you are referring to. If we can get past this little issue, I will know what I need to concentrate on as far as rendering an opinion. Thanks!

                In reading the whole page, it references the double beard as well. But yes, it is mainly about the doubled eye lid too. I couldn’t help but realize that the doubling in the beard in that picture, and my coin is very similar. I actually got a response from John Wexler who asked me to send it in. Which I will do. I’m having an extremely hard time posting any pictures on this site, as it refuses to: and so I asked James to send two pictures to you.

                  OK. I think I understand what you are saying now. However, Mr. Wexler and I disagree on whether or not this is a doubled die. We are talking about the eyelid as well. The beard 'doubling' is something different. As far as the beard anomaly goes, it is not doubling. It is merely part of the design for 1992 Lincoln cent. It is on ALL cents struck that year.
                  I had been criticized previously for this analysis, but it is what it is. Mostly it just entails finding other 1992 cents and you will see it. Here is a page from another forum where this is discussed as well. As you can see, it is prevalent on all 1992 cents. The fact you see it on a 1992D cent backs up my point.


                  I am really happy Mr. Wexler got in touch with you. Please let us know what he says but also understand that there are many things he will list that we will not and vice versa. That is another reason why there is a disparity between total numbers of varieties between each site. Each attributer makes their own calls on these. Thanks for hanging in there with me on this. I ask that you send a private message to 'Peter' concerning the issues you are having with uploading photos. There is a size limit, so you just might need to reduce the size of your photos.

                  I sent him a message about this also. Hopefully, we can get you some help with this.
