Where’s the CONECA Master List
Without a doubt that’s been the most frequently asked questions those of us on the CONECA Board have heard these past 2 years. Sometimes many times in one day. It’s not an easy answer and after finally being able to create, test and now launch the new site we hope you find that your patience has been worth the wait.
For many years the original Master List was presented as text only variety listings with no images on a series of html pages. We had to translate those text files onto a data base driven platform that allowed us to more easily search and access information. To properly make the Master List we wanted to merge a varieties text with its images. We’re working through 190,000+ denomination images shot over 30 year to cull, improve and add to them. All denomination images will be added as completed but going through them is an intense ongoing process.
— Lincoln Wheat Cent Doubled Die Obverse Varieties (DDOs) and Doubled Die Reverse Varieties (DDRs) are complete and posted
— Lincoln Memorial Cent Doubled Die Obverse Varieties (DDOs) and Doubled Die Reverse Varieties (DDRs) are being worked on
— Jefferson Nickel Doubled Die Obverse & Doubled Die Reverse Varieties (DDOs & DDRs) are complete and posted
— Jefferson Nickel Repunched Mint Marks (RPMs) are complete and posted with new additions
— State Quarter 1999-2008, D.C. & Territorial Quarters 2009, ATBQuarter 2010-2019 are being worked on
A denomination is now accessed from one page. From that page, one text box allows you to search by Date, Mintmark, Date-MM, CONECA Number, Mint location (Denver, Philadelphia, San Fransisco), Year + DDO, Year + DDR, Year + RPM, DDO-xxx, DDR-xxx, RPM-xxx, DDO, DDR, RPM, OMM, Die Type (PR, Satin) or any similar combinations of title key words. Each variety links to a page with its information and images. Search examples might be:
Type in the year only and all varieties for that year will be pulled up
Year and MM (example — 1938, 1938-D, 1944-P, 1938-S)
Year and Die Type (example — 1959 PR, 2005 Satin)
Year and CONECA Number (example — 1938 DDO-001, 1940 RPM-001)
Year, Mintmark and CONECA number (example — 1940-D RPM-001)
Mint Location (example — Denver, Philadelphia, San Fransisco)
We hope you enjoy and utilize the Master List!
CONECA would like to thank (in alphabetical order) Eric Extell for his work sorting through, organizing and adding to the Jefferson Nickel RPM images and variety listings; Al Raddi for his work sorting through and organizing the Lincoln Wheat Cent and Lincoln Memorial Cent DDO & DDR images and variety listings and Stephen Young for his work sorting through, organizing and adding to the Jefferson Nickel DDO & DDR, images and variety listings and the State, Territorial and ATB Quarter images and variety listings.
CONECA is actively looking for help. Members with extensive knowledge in a specific denomination(s) or die stages can volunteer to work with us on this project. Or if your skill set is with content management systems and databases we’d like to hear from you. If you’re not sure but seriously interested in content management I’ll train you.

Welcome to the CONECA Web Site!
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 those pages on our site! We thank everybody who has helped make CONECA the great success that it is today!
