January 2015: heart vs. seeblatt, Overturn of November 2004 ruling[edit]

As of the January 2015 LoAR, there is a DC between a heart and a seeblatt: "Hearts and seeblätter have not been shown to be artistic variants in period. Both charges were used in period heraldry but, as far as we know, they were not used interchangeably. Therefore, following our current standards, there is Distinct Change (DC) between the two types of charge. At the same time, a seeblatt must be recognizably a seeblatt: identifiability must be preserved, and having too small a cut-out will be grounds for return for blurring the distinction between the charges."

October 2014 - maple vs. lady's mantle leaves:[edit]

#161Cassandra Hardwick. Name and device. Gules, a lady's mantle leaf argent. In commentary, Goutte d'Eau documented both elements to the same year in the same town, making this an excellent late period English name! This submission is clear of conflict with the protected important non-SCA badge for Canada (Tinctureless) A maple leaf. There is a DC for the change from a tinctureless to a tinctured design and another DC for the difference between a maple leaf and a lady's mantle leaf. http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2014/10/14-10lar.html#161

March 2013 - lobed vs. unlobed:[edit]

#120Isylte Aron. Device. Per pale sable and vert, three elm leaves conjoined in annulo Or. Blazoned on the Letter of Intent as hawthorne leaves//, these leaves have a serrated edge but no lobes. The common hawthorn has lobes, but other species of hawthorn may or may not have lobes. These leaves more closely resemble nettle or elm leaves. As nettle leaves may be confused with the heraldic //nesselblatt//, we have chosen to reblazon this as //elm leaves. This device is not in conflict with the badge of Avine de Hert, (Fieldless) Three oak leaves conjoined in annulo Or. There is one DC for fieldlessness, and another DC for the change in type of leaf, from lobed to unlobed... http://heraldry.sca.org/loar/2013/04/13-04lar.html

August 2009 LoAR - oak vs holly:[edit]

"Prior Laurel precedent (December 1993 LoAR, p. 12) does not grant a CD between oak leaves and holly leaves." [2009 LoAR]

November 2004 LoAR - heart vs seeblatt - OVERTURNED, see above[edit]

"There is no CD for type between a heart and a seeblatt." [2004 LoAR]

March 2001 LoAR - blackthorn vs oak:[edit]

[an ivy leaf vert] This is clear of ... On a blackthorn leaf vert an increscent argent, and ... On an oak leaf vert a hand argent. In each case there is a CD for fieldlessness and the shape of the leaves is significantly different enough for there to be a second CD. [Isabel Ulfsdottir, [[10]], A-Middle] http://heraldry.sca.org/precedents/elsbeth/armory.html#LEAF

December 1999 LoAR - maple vs single-lobed:[edit]

There is a CD between a maple leaf and single-lobed leaves such as elm leaves and blackthorn leaves. [Runa Ragnarsdottir, [[11]], A-Caid] http://heraldry.sca.org/precedents/elsbeth/armory.html#LEAF

July 1992 LoAR - oak vs maple:[edit]

[Four oak leaves in cross// v. //four holly leaves conjoined in cross//] We have hitherto granted a CD for type of a single leaf: //oak leaf// vs. //maple leaf// (Karl the Meek and Mild), or //oak leaf// vs.//elm leaf (Siobhan O Riordain). But this is offset here by the identical motifs: the arrangement and conjoining in cross add to the visual similarity. [returned for visual conflict] (Anne Chavelle of Silver Oak, July, 1992, pg. 22) http://heraldry.sca.org/precedents/bruce/leaf.html
