New in the ErrorScope
CONECA (The Combined Organizations of Numismatic Error Collectors of America) has released its latest bimonthly journal, The ErrorScope. The July / August issue should be available to members at or around the first of July from the CONECA ErrorScope Online Members Only Area (assessable from the banner at the top of the CONECA homepage) and a hard copy should be showing up in mail boxes to all current members any day now.
In this issue, Robert Knauss in his series of “In Search of Standing Liberty Quarter Varieties and Errors” shifts gears and discusses and illustrates some of the errors found on Standing Liberty Quarters.
Ken Potter also discusses and illustrates a 1968 Columbian 20 centavos piece that was submitted by R.A. Medina. This particular variety has some very attractive heavy doubling.
Roger Paulen has submitted an outstanding article illustrating a rare 1980 Canadian one cent coin, with a three – piece bonded broadstruck triplet.
This issue also contains a nice review of some of the Doubled Dies from the Oregon and Minnesota Statehood Quarter Program. Also some detailed images of the 1920 Pilgrim Tercentenary Commemorative half dollar FS-901 showing the progression of the die crack from early die state through late die state.
CONECA President, Mark Lighterman, announces that CONECA will be celebrating the organizations’ 30th anniversary with a special double struck medal; order forms will be included in the September / October issue of ErrorScope.
James Motley, CONECA Board of Directors – Membership, has been working to restart the CONECA State Representatives Program and it is up and running. This is a very important endeavor Mr. Motley is undertaking and will hopefully not only increase our membership but will also aid collectors, old and new alike in the study / identification of errors and varieties at local coin clubs and shows. Any members that are interested in helping out are urged to contact Mr. Motley at Coneca@alpinecomputers.net
