awry created by then Laurel King of Arms Wilhelm von Schlussel to allow
the use in SCA heraldry of items that were first documented in the first
half of the 17th century under the supposition that just because it was
first mentioned doesn't mean it hadn't been around already for a few
Unfortunately, it was wildly misused to allow things that were
documentedly invented (rather than just referred to) between 1600 and
1650, and it also spawned the misbelief that the SCA has (or at some
point had) a 1650 cutoff date.
