|TAI #31||Fingolfin heraldic device|
Inscribed in pencil to right, “Fingolfin & / his house”. MS. Tolkien Drawings 91, fol. 4r, shows that all reproductions of this device before 2018 are rotated 90º counterclockwise to what was intended; also, that each side is (or should be) 51mm — though this figure was crossed out and not emended.
