Notes: "Since Arthur DuVall's first design of Herbert Simpson's mounted archer there has been a long line of successive ones, all variations upon the original, to match the text or mood at hand. In addition to this, a major variation on the original, others have ranged from an orb and cross design to a Chinese ideograph." © James Lamar Weygand
