This is an ongoing project to create an exhaustive ordinary of Johann Siebmacher's Wappenbuch from 1605. I am working from the digitization of it available here. If you find any error, please let me know. As a work in progress, it will be updated as I have time.
All blazons are my own. Note that in some cases, shields with a helmet facing sinister have had their arms reversed as well (e.g., a bend is displayed as a bend sinister, the tinctures of the field reversed, etc. So if you think you've found an error, double check the helm on top!) Each blazon is identified with the name of the owner as it appears in Siebmacher, with these conventions: I have transcribed vocalic v as u, and expanded ē, Gē:, and V̄ to en, genannt, and Von, respectively. The number in parentheses is the plate number on which the arms occur.
Gules, a hand bendwise proper, Mündelseim (226).
Gules, on a hand proper, a cross gules, die Gieser (86).
Per fess gules and argent, a brown hand proper, von Domisch (156).
Quarterly 1st per bend argent and gules, 2nd and 3rd per pale Or and sable, a nail counterchanged, 4th per bend gules and argent, overall an escutcheon per bend gules and argent, in honor point a hand grasping a spike argent, die Artsteter (37).
