Scallop Band 02

Scallop Band 02


Scallop Band 2 is characterized by a continuous band of small half-circles painted between two, thin plain bands. Unlike Scallop Band 1, the half-circles in Scallop Band 2 do not touch the bottom plain band. Attached to the base of each half-circle is a single dot or short line. The half-circles may be empty or they may be painted solid, as the two examples demonstrate.

Note: Very similar to Scallop Band 13
