TAI #30“Lúthien Tinúviel” plaque with heraldic device

MS. Tolkien Drawings 91, fol. 10r, shows that Hammond & Scull‘s orientation in Artist & Illustrator is correct, and that the diameter (unclear as to inner or pencil guide) is (or should be) 54mm — though this figure was crossed out and not emended.
