Examination Services

CONECA now offers our Examination Service for
members and non-members through our Forum.
return an opinion of each coin’s error classification.

As of November 23, 2020 CONECA has reorganized the management of the CONECA Master List and updated its submission process. Our current Examiners are:

US Errors — Mark Lighterman / striking & planchet errors only
World Errors — Mike Ellis

At this time we are accepting coin submissions for Examination through our Forum found HERE.

Examiners that have been listed in prior issues of Errorscope or the CONECA website should not be sent coins or contacted directly. When a submitted coin has been looked at and confirmed through the appropriate Forum thread a CONECA Examiner will be assigned. If needed, instructions on where to send your coin(s) for further Examination will be given through the Forum.

We appreciate your patience as we reorganize and create a new management system for the CONECA Master List and look forward to helping you identify your varieties and errors.

Examination Only Fees are $4 per coin for CONECA members. Non-members will be contacted by an examiner for current prices. 
All prices will include return postage & insurance.

Return postage costs are added at $8.00 per package with $100 Ins. Please add $1.00 for each additional $100 of insurance you desire. Check with the USPS for registered mail prices, should you desire to have your coins returned by registered mail. There will be an additional $15 mailing charge for each package returned by registered mail.

When sending coins, pack them carefully and ship through the U.S. Postal Service by insured or registered mail with the proper amount of insurance. Do not ship by certified mail that provides no insurance.

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.
