    On p.54 of the current issue – Top of the Lots – the main illustration is described as an armorial crest. This is quite incorrect as it is a Coat of Arms. In fact a crest is not present at all which if it were would be a Lion standing on the Crown This is elementary and whoever wrote the description (even without being an heraldic expert) should know the difference between an Armorial and a Crest, (the latter being the emblem on the top alone as the name implies) – especially when writing in a specialist magazine !
