3: Rhys Penbras ap Dafydd - New Badge

OSCAR finds the name on the Æthelmearc LoI of September 21, 2016 as submitted.

(Fieldless) A raven contourny within and conjoined to an annulet Or.

Herald of Record: Eleanor Godwin

Client's previous submission, (Fieldless) A raven contourny Or was returned at kingdom in September 2017 for conflict with John Aquila of Eaglesdown (device, Aug 1978): Purpure, an eagle close to sinister Or, since by precedent "we do not grant difference between a raven close and an eagle close." (Nicolas Coulon, http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2012/12/12-12lar.html#174). The addition of the conjoined annulet clears this conflict.
