... where you're going to run across a discussion about, or pictures of (good or bad) heraldry. In this case, I ran across a recent string of posts in a guitar and musician forum, My Les Paul, at http://www.mylespaul.com/forums/backstage/85456-coat-arms.html
Then, of course, someone else had to get into the conversation with "Here's mine".
http://www.archives.state.al.us/emblems/st_coa.html, where it is noted that "The original design of the Alabama coat of arms was made in 1923 by B. J. Tieman, New York, an authority on heraldry." Frankly, I have to question how much of an "authority" he really was, but maybe that's just me.)
