(as they would seem to appear on the left spur) Sable (or azure) 3 fesses (or bars) or within a bordure gules (only a trace of the red enamel on the bordure still remains).
Arms of du Gout de Caseaux (olim de Goth) Or 3 fasces de gules (as given by Jongla de Morenas, Grand Armorial de France, IV, p. 194, no. 18023, and Rietstap).
Arms of de Dio (Palatin de Dio du Montpeiroux) (as given by Jongla de Morenas, Grand armorial de France, III, p. 199, no. 12987, and Rietstap)
Arms of de Dammartin (as given by Jongla de Morenas, Grand Armorial de France, III, p. 137, no. 12188, and Rietstap)
The above arms are the closest to the arms on spurs 29.60.1-2, that have been found. However, both are "barry of six within a bordure" rather than "three fesses on a shield within a bordure". H. Nickel, May 4, 1965
