Make no bones about it, the three obverses that are found on Edward VII
shillings are not easy to distinguish. There are slight redesigns in
some individual letters in the legend, and the consequent spacing between
them. The effect of wear on these letters can be very misleading, so
try and compare the highest grade specimens that you can if you are trying
to identify them.
