Acorn (Period)

The acorn is the fruit of the oak tree; for that reason, it was considered a symbol of latent strength.  It’s a period charge, found in the arms of Gilsburgh or Gillsborough, c.1490 [DBA2 350].  The acorn’s Society default is with stem to chief, which seems to be the opposite of medieval convention.  An “acorn proper” is brown in Society armory.
