The 1913 florin occurs in at least two varieties. One has a fairly upright 13
and the other has the 13 sloping slightly more to the left but the difference is
very subtle. Another distinguishing feature is the alignment of the second 1 in
the date with the rim denticles below it. On the latter variety, the 1 is squarely
over a denticle whereas on the latter the 1 is slightly offset and aligned more
over the gap between two denticles. Overall, it seems to me that the date is slightly
wider on the latter variety but I lack the means to verify that assertion.
There may be a third variety, similar to the first mentioned above, but with
the second 1 closer to the centreline of the coin.

All varieties have flat-base lettering on the reverse legend.
Second 1 of date is upright and is aligned almost over the gap between two rim
Second 1 of date slopes to the left and is aligned directly above a rim denticle.
Similar to the first variety in that the second 1 of date is upright but the
1 is closer to the centreline of the coin and is aligned directly over the gap between
two rim denticles.
