Let's see if we can find a way of covering coins to which the above does not apply. Possibly we may need to add more words such as 'heraldic' to the list. I do however appreciate that, particularly for early coins, such descriptions may not be possible so if there are illustrations they can simply be referred to as the 'upper' or 'lower' one and further labels become unnecessary.Bill.
