1: Albrecht von Rügen -Resub Device
OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in March of 2016, via Avacal.
Argent, a crown within an annulet of chain Or, upon an eagle head sable contourny issuing from base.
Restricted charge - chain submitter, was knighted Jun 29, 1996 according to the Avacal OP.
Restricted charge - coronet, submitter was made viscount February 21, 1998.
Submission history, as per Jun 2016 LoAR:
Argent, in pale a coronet voided and an eagle's head contourny issuant from base sable charged with an annulet of chain Or.
"This device is returned for running afoul of SENA A3C which states "Voiding and fimbriation may only be used with ordinaries or simple geometric charges when they are part of a primary charge group." By precedent, a coronet is not simple enough to void.
The submitter is a knight and thus entitled to display an annulet of chain in his armory. The submitter is also a viscount and thus allowed to use a coronet in his armory."
This design has eliminated the voided crown and has placed it on the eagle head in base.
2: Kerry Garadh -Resub Device
OSCAR finds the name registered exactly as it appears in August of 2015, via Avacal.
Per fess embattled azure and argent, three rare mouses displayed, argent.
Device. Azure, a wall couped argent masoned sable.
This device is returned for multiple conflicts.
From the Aug 2015 LoAR:
It is in conflict with the device of Stanford of Sheffield, Per fess and per pale dovetailed argent and azure, in sinister chief a tower argent, and the device of Thomas of Dinbych, Per fess embattled gules, and argent masoned sable, in chief a castle triple-towered argent. In both cases, there is no DC between a wall couped and a tower. There is not DC for the forced move of the tower. The only DC is for changing the field.
It is also in conflict with the badge of the Canton of Walkiala: Azure, a tower and in chief five wood anemones argent. There is no DC between a wall couped and a tower and thus the only DC is for the removal of the secondary charges.
It is also in conflict with the badge of Njall Sigvaldason: Azure, a tower argent a bordure indented Or. There is no DC between a wall couped and a tower and thus the only DC is for the removal of the bordure.
Because there is also no DC between a castle and a wall couped, this device also conflicts with the badge of Elizabeth Winter of White Forest, Azure, a double-towered castle argent and in chief three mullets of eight points in chevron argent, with a single DC for removing the secondary mullets. Likewise, it conflict with the device of Michaela de Neuville, Azure, a triple-towered castle argent, illumined purpure, between three crescents Or, with a single DC for removing the secondary crescents.
This is a complete re-design and the above history is not relevant.
