COIN CLUBS

CONECA

www.conecaonline.org This Combined Organization of Numismatic Error Collectors of America is the largest error/variety coin club in the world, and any error or variety collector should consider joining this club. I am a member and serve on the board of directors. The club's journal "Errorscope" has useful and informational articles on error coins, and the club's attribution services are a good benefit.
