In this contribution I will review the analysis of the Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen argument, Bell's inequalities and of associated experiments for spins in terms of positive operator valued measures. Specifically, I will explore the relation between the Clauser-Horne-Shimony-Holt inequality and a fundamental classicality property of observables - their coexistence. A derivation of Bell's inequalities for unsharp spins will be given which follows a reconstruction by Mittelstaedt and Stachow of the original EPR argument. In this context we discuss the need for a consistent relativistic description of localised measurements, carried out in spacelike separated regions of spacetime on spatially extended, entangled systems.
