I’m researching the history of N3F. I remember from back when I was first a member in the early and mid-1980s, the National Fantasy Fan Federation had a Shield/Coat of Arms that was printed on the zines and the membership cards.
What I remember of it was that it consisted of a shield with a white chevron with three nautical stars. In the lower field was a skull.
The upper part had two other pictures. I’m thinking one was an open book and the other was an ink and pen – but I am not sure. Additionally, there was a curved scroll ribbon under it with some now-unknown text.
I would be grateful for any help with this at all. Please feel free to click the photo I’ve included – it will enlarge once you do.
