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

    Hi all,

    New member here. I look forward to reading and learning about everyone and the coins they encounter. I have been collecting coins for about 2 years, my dad collected all his life and I know where I get it from. I really find it interesting and amazing to look closely at coins. Even though I think some shouldn't be viewed really close (creepy eyes staring back).

    Locally, we have an antique mall that sells coins on consignment. I love looking at those and try to buy the ones I can afford. My favorites are the Ike dollar (so cool to hold in your hand) and the Peace dollar (just cause she is way cool and the symbolism of what she stands for). Morgans aren't bad either. LOL

    I live the Southwest and when I coin roll hunt, I am amazed at how bad the Denver mint is on striking. Most of the coins I view are from Denver mint. Nonetheless, I have received an education on machine doubling versus doubled dies.

    I look forward to the forums.

    Happy collecting!

    Welcome to the forum. It is nice that you are here. I think the point you made about machine doubling versus a doubled die is one of the most critical determinations you will have to make in the variety hobby. Very good luck to you.
