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 everyone. I am B L C Scott and I am a new coin collector and a non-member to the group as yet. I am seeking info on a beautiful 1968 D Kennedy Half Dollar that I removed from a new Mint Set. I noticed what appears to tiny winged angels imprinted on the coin as well as when I rotated the coin there appears to be a blob that looks like another eye. It was pretty scary. Could this be an error coin? Are there any errors such as this?

    Can you post pics? Do you really believe they are tiny winged angels? Obviously, the mint didn't stamp it on there, so the chances are that you are seeing things that remind you of something else. This is called pareidolia.

      Thank You. I will research a little more but will be forwarding the coin to ANACS for research and attribution. Hope I'm not going Coo-Coo. Unfortunately, I do not have a microscope/camera/computer set-up, but I do have a 30x hand-held magnifier with a light. But thanks for responding.
