Attribution Services

CONECA offers an attribution service
whereby members and non-members can send their coins
directly to an authorized CONECA attributer.

Attribution Only Process

1 Identify the appropriate attributer. Click here for a list of CONECA attributers.
2 Email or write to the attributer requesting approval to send your coins. By doing this, you can ensure that your coins will arrive at a time when the attributer is really available (i.e., not on vacation or away cherrypicking at a show).
3 For every coin you’re sending, tell the attributer the denomination, date, quantity, and any specific questions you’d like to have answered
4 When the attributer gives you the okay to send your coins, then package and ship your coins by U.S. Postal Service. You should ship the coins by insured or registered mail with the proper amount of insurance. Do not ship by certified mail as it provides no insurance.
5 When shipping your coins, be sure to include the appropriate check or money order (payable to the attributer) to cover attribution fees. The fee is $4.00 per coin for CONECA members (Non-members contact attributer for current prices). You must also include return postage and insurance, which is usually $5.00 per package for items totaling under $200.00.  Check at www.usps.com when in doubt.

Note: The reduced fee quickly pays for a CONECA membership; sign up with your first attribution package and save money.

* Mike Ellis prescreens 20th/21st Century U.S. Die Varieties to determine if they are already listed by consulting existing books and
other published reports and then supplies the submitter with the correct number if he can find it. If he cannot determine the
CONECA number or it is new, he will refer you to James Wiles.

** James Wiles offers the same service as Mike Ellis except that only he can assign CONECA numbers to new varieties not previously
reported. It should be noted that James Wiles’ attribution fees are significantly higher than those of Mike Ellis (consult with
either Ellis or Wiles or both to help determine which service would suit your needs best).

Note Regarding Submissions
• An Examiner diagnoses and describes mint errors. He’s a diagnostician.
• An Attributer compares a submitted variety to the list of known varieties and tries to find a match. If there’s no match, he assigns it a new CONECA number or if it’s a world variety, a new number in the Variety Coin Register.
• Potential submitters should first contact their chosen expert by phone or e-mail to make sure they can accept your coins and are not struggling with a backlog. You may also contact your attributer by SASE.
