The Beisser Coat of Arms For my English speaking friends:
The adjacent Beisser coat of arms is from the big "Kurz'schen
Wappensamlung," Volume II, page 57. -- That shows a golden
dog's head with a blue collar on a red shield . -- Another dog's
head grows out of the helmet as in the shield. -- The colors of
the helmet mantling on both sides are gold on red.
This family is an old Swabian middle-class family. The spelling
of the name varied over time: Beiser, Beyßer & also Beußer.
The latter, however, carried a different coat of arms.
(The "Kurz' schen Wappen Samlung" was handscribed by
Eugen Kurz in Ulm, Bavaria, Germany and remains unpublished.)
