The 1st Tenure of Da'ud Ibn Auda (2nd year)
HAND AND GAUNTLET
"It is poor style to use two similar but non-identical charges in a a single group. For example, using a sword and two poinards in a sheaf... has been cause for return in the past. The use of two different types of gauntlets is likewise impermissible." (LoAR 7/91 p.21).
"While there appears to be no problem with a Jewish hat per se, the emblazoned hats on the device do not match either the submitter's own documentation or other documentation presented by Lords Batonvert and Habicht. That documentation shows almost all Jewish hats to have a ball atop the spike of the hat. If the submitter would be willing to redraw his hats so that they match the documented form for Jewish hats we see no bar to registration." (LoAR 7/91 p.22).
"The commentary was very nearly unanimous that there is not a CVD between a bison's head and a bull's head." (LoAR 8/91 p.14).
[A fox's head contourny erased vs. a gazelle's head contourny erased] "There is one CVD for the change to the type of the critter's head, but X.2 cannot be applied here." (LoAR 9/91 p.15).
"There is [a CVD]... for the difference between griffin's heads and eagle's heads." [overruling an implied precedent on the LoAR 7/90 p.11). (LoAR 10/91 p.1).
[A horse's head couped argent maned gules fimbriated Or] "There are simply too many problems with the emblazon here to register this and tell the submitter to 'draw the X properly.' The greatest difficulty comes with the mane of the horse's head which, rather than being of flames proper, is gules, fimbriated Or. The mane is far too complex to fimbriate. (And there is some question as to whether 'maned of flames' is acceptable SCA style.) The suggestion by Lord Trefoil that we simply blazon the mane gules and tolerate its low contrast against the field as an artistic detail worth no heraldic difference will not work here. On this horse's head the mane is easily as significant as a pair of wings would be, and we would not allow them to break tincture either." (LoAR 10/91 p.17).
[A ram's head affronty] "Conflict with...a dragon's head cabossed... While there is a CD for type of primary charge, X.2 does not apply here." (LoAR 11/91 p.23).
[A mullet charged with a lynx's face] "Conflict with...on a mullet... a fox's mask... The change in type only of the tertiary, particularly since they are both animal's heads in the same position, is not sufficient for [a CD]." (LoAR 1/92 p.16).
[Three cranes' heads couped and conjoined at the beaks] "Conflict with... sable three swan's heads... there is one CD for the arrangement of the primaries, but nothing for the change to type." (LoAR 5/92 p.24).
"There was some disagreement among the commenters as to whether or not the heart is a simple geometric charge which would qualify under X.4.j.ii, allowing change of type only to a tertiary to grant a second CVD." [Returned for conflict, implying no X.4.j.ii-qualification for hearts, and for other reasons of pretense.] (LoAR 7/91 p.19).
"The commentary on [X.4.j.ii] seemed to be reasonably clear. As a consequence, the application of X.4.j.ii. for the granting of a Clear Difference for substantial change of type of a tertiary will be applicable only to tertiaries on an ordinary or simple, geometric shape such as a lozenge, delf or roundel. It will not be applied to charges on mullets, suns or hearts." (CL 1/6/92 p.1).
