  1. Another good differentiator in the two images is the edge at the back of the neck/bust, and where it is in relation to the BR in BRITT: The left hand image (Obv. 1) lines up to the trailing edge of the B, but in the right hand image (Obv. 2) it nearly lines up with the leading edge of the R in BRITT.

    Ebay's Worst Offerings

    Looking at the shop link there is a real variety of items on sale not just coins, maybe he's hired a suite at the Hilton to store the stock. But back to coin related, I like the description 'EDWARDVS' given to this item and no mention of a copy/reproduction... https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/KING-EDWARDVS-VII-1902-Five-Pounds-St-George-and-dragon-/162730014601 I'm almost tempted getting one to see how it looks and feels in hand, as I'll never be able to afford a real one! but I'm going to save my money towards genuine coins.

Hope it is of some use.
