      You are mis-remembering. The 50-year "grace period" was a good idea gone
      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.
