English Coins 1902?Matte PROOF - a rare example having the designers initials 'De.S' and the commencement of the legend double struck -minor surface nicks on obverse?otherwise About FDC (Notes on Edwardian issues: All Five pound pieces, proofs and currencies appear struck from one die sinking. dates occur either 7 mm?or 7.5 mm wide, whilst currencies are either 7.5 mm?or 8 mm wide. Proof two pound pieces have a pointed base to the figure '2', whilst currencies pieces are all rounded. s and halfsovereigns appear to be struck from one die sinking) (Notes on issues: All five pound and two pound pieces and proof sovereigns and proof half-sovereigns are 'full neck' and from single die-sinkings. Currency pieces for 1911 are both 'full neck' and 'shallow neck', but unlike the silver issues? all share the same legend and border beading. The 'full neck has a more raised portion above the initial 'M'?whilst the shallow neck' almost touches the top of the 'M'. From 1912 ?onwards the 'full neck' dies appear to be almost exclusively used throughout the series for both London and branch mints until 1928, but?with some exceptions - a 1912 'P' has been noted with 'shallow neck'. Further examination is required to consolidate this series)
