Article IX : Coronet Sumptuary Laws
Section 5 : Baronial Coronets
A. All barons and baronesses have the right to wear one of the following
as a sign of their rank:
1. Flat-topped coronets may have 6 to 12 spherical projections of no more
than ½ inch diameter extending from the top of the coronet. It is
recommended that flat-topped baronial coronets be made clearly wider than fillets.
2. Engrailed coronets may have up to six points or projections, which may
be surmounted by spherical projections of no more than ½ inch diameter. The
line of the coronet between points must be smoothly concave, in order to
clearly distinguish them from county coronets.
B. Territorial barons and baronesses have the exclusive right to wear
baronial coronets decorated with the arms, ensign, or badge of their barony. A
laurel wreath may only be included as part of the arms of the barony. A
baronial coronet should not have the personal insignia of the baron or
baroness, since it is not a personal coronet, but one that represents the barony.
C. Ansteorran territorial barons and baronesses, and court barons and
baronesses who have ruled Ansteorran baronies, may display a single Ansteorran
Star on their baronial coronets.
D. Court barons and baronesses have the right to wear standard baronial
coronets, as long as the decorations do not violate existing sumptuary laws.
Section 6 : Other Kingdoms
Nobles who receive their nobility in other SCA kingdoms may wear coronets
that follow that kingdom‟s sumptuary laws, unless it is a striking
violation of normally accepted SCA practice. Burden of proof is on the noble.
In other words, the ONLY restrictions are those required to keep them from
looking like fillets or territorial baronial, county or ducal coronets.
These are the laws in Ansteorra, and those of other kingdoms may vary
slightly. Read the sections just above this one to see what is mandated for ducal
and county coronets. The rules for territorial coronets are given here. The
other advice you've been given is sound; these are the rules. If any of it
is not clear, let me know. Note that personal arms or a personal badge are
fine on a personal coronet, just not on a territorial one.

ok, I'm trying to work on a project, and as usual my research abilities
are less than fruitful.
I believe I have the pattern the proper size to begin assembly, but want
to verify 1st.
so I need someone with a much larger brain than mine to please point me
where I need to go look in order to find the allowable measurements for a
court baronial " hat " , specifically , how tall may it be, and are there any
color restrictions ??
Be Safe , Be Happy, Have Fun .
