The following clubs are either devoted to die varieties or provide information related to some aspect of die varieties. If you are aware of additional clubs that provide information on die varieties, please send the information so that we can add the club information to this page, as well as add links to the club's website if they have one.
CONECA: CONECA (pronounced: CO´NECA) is a national numismatic organization devoted to the education of error and variety coin collectors. Its focus is 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. CONECA publishes an educational journal, The Errorscope, which is printed and mailed to members bimonthly and it offers a dynamic website. In recent years the website has offered news stories on member finds, auction results, educational stories, research, etc., some of which are found nowhere else. The same is true of the Errorscope.
In the last year, CONECA has expanded its website to include an area dedicated to 20th and 21st Century die varieties (administered by James Wiles) and an Error-Variety Coin Forum where folks can ask questions, give answers, share opinions or theory in addition to sharing images. CONECA is now creating a members only area for the website that should be functional soon and will not detract from existing features that are now offered to members and nonmembers alike.
CONECA offers a lending library, examination, listing and attribution services; it holds annual meetings at major conventions (referred to as Errorama) around the country. Annual dues to CONECA are $25.00 a year for adults and $7.50 a year for Young Numismatists (under 18). Add $12.50 additional for first-class mailing if preferred. Dues for membership outside of the USA are $37.50. Dues may be mailed in to the Membership Chairperson, B. J. Neff, 321 Kingslake Drive, Debary, FL 32713. Or they can be paid using a credit card through PayPal by going to the club’s “Join or Renew” page accessible from http://www.conecaonline.org. A printable membership application, while not necessary, may also be accessed from the website. Questions regarding membership can be directed to Neff by email at: CONECAmembers@aol.com and all checks should be made payable to: CONECA.
