A rare little find

Post by J Duncan of Sketraw » Sat Mar 25, 2006 5:30 pm

Although out of my pocket at £180 pounds this silver cap badge dated 1850 of Duncan of Ardwonie is a rare find indeed. The Arms themselves were first recorded in the Lyon Court, Register of all Arms Scotland in 1698.



Gules, on a chevron between three cinquefoils in chief Argent and a hunting-horn in base of the same, tipped and garnished Azure, three buckles of the third.

Crest: A grey-hound issuing from the wreath, proper, collared Or

Motto: Vivat Veritas
