[ANSTHRLD] arms - your thoughts

The earliest Achievement copy I have is from Ansteorra' 15th Anniversary.  All artwork is credited but the back cover and the schedule flyer -- the B&W depictions being the same.  The lion is statant erect guardant with the black star environed by the crown and laurel wreath.  Later renderings all show the lion rampant guardant and the black star and crown in pale and jointly environed by the laurel wreath.

To clarify:  I'm not remotely uncertain, I've got that artwork right
in front of me right now, and that lion is looking right back at me,
sticking its tongue out.  (He's also not rampant, he's best described
as "statant erect", but I think we can ask the Crown if they want him
changed to rampant, to more closely match the Lion badge; for that
matter, if we think that we should better reflect the Lion badge, we
should ask the Crown if they want to drop the guardant.)

I'm going to bring this artwork to Red Tape this weekend, since
apparently I'm about the only person left active in the Ansteorran
CoH who's seen it, much less owns a copy.
