The latest issue of Errorscope, CONECA’S (The Combined Organizations of Numismatic Error Collectors of America) bimonthly journal is now at the printers.
The May / June issue should be available to members at or around the first of May 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 at about the same time.
In this issue, Robert Knauss continues his series of “In Search of Standing Liberty Quarter Varieties and Errors” and focuses this article on the 1918/7 – S over date. Mr. Knauss uses several photographs in his article showing some markers of this variety.
Roger Paulen discusses in his article a doubled die 1967 Canadian Centennial 1 – Cent piece. Mr. Paulen with the assistance of Ken Potter, elaborates on the history of this variety and when Alan Herbert first listed it for Robert Wilharm.
The 1995-D Lincoln One Cent DDO-003 is highlighted in this issue, along with several others varieties, courtesy of James Wiles, CONECA 20th / 21st Century Die Variety attributor. Joe Rizdy writes an interesting article on the 1859 Canadian One Cent struck on a brass planchet and a 1881 Canadian One Cent piece showing some doubling in the word VICTORIA.
Jon Sullivan gives us a show report on the 59th Annual Winter FUN Show held in Orlando, Florida. One of coins featured in Mr. Sullivan’s article is a 1911 Lincoln cent double-strike off center that Rich Schemmer had in one of his cases.
Finally, Joseph Ceravone discusses what is involved in setting up a table as a CONECA State Representative at a coin show. Mr. Ceravone’s suggested blueprint makes it sound so easy that the rewards will definitely outweigh the effort, what better way to see and study different die varieties and errors.
