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 , Gē:, and to en, genannt, and Von, respectively. The number in parentheses is the plate number on which the arms occur.

FIELD, DIVIDED - Per pale - Or - and multicolor

Per pale bendy sinister argent and gules and Or, die Schwertzel (138).

Per pale checky gules and argent and Or, die Buntschn (54), die Ratzbar (52).

Per pale Or and bendy gules and argent, issuant from the line of division the dexter half of an eagle sable, Nürnberg (219).

Per pale Or and per fess gules and argent, in dexter a lion sable, Gurck (12).
