ROUGE SCARPE:Returned for presumption with Isengard, Sable, a hand argent. Important non-SCA arms. There are a few of related precedents:


Hands and gauntlets are considered as equivalent charges for determining difference... "[w]e give no difference between a hand and a gauntlet" [Brian Brock, 5/99, R-Atenveldt.]

Aaron MacGregor. Device. Per bend bendy argent and gules and sable, a sinister hand argent.
Conflict with Kenric Manning, Lozengy azure and Or, a hand argent, registered September, 2000. There is not a CD between a dexter hand and a sinister hand, therefore there is only a single CD for the change to the field. (10/2000)

 

There is no difference between a dexter and a sinister hand. [Elspeth Flannagann, 12/2002, R-Atenveldt]

 

There is a DC for the field but none for it being a gauntlet vs. a hand or whether it is a right or left hand.Since the conflict is with non-SCA arms it falls under of the armory presumption rules in SENA.
