I agree with you. I just checked the registry and it does not match. The blended standards and the beard seem to be okay but the falls should be chocolate and do not mention any banding.
I took the picture on a garden trek so it probably is incorrect. I have not grown this variety myself.
Hope someone else has a correct picture.
Thanks, Jan in Chatsworth

When i saw the picture of Huck Finn i thought it really looked like Oklahoma Bandit, which is possible since it's the pol parent, but checking in the register, it doesn't say Huck Finn has the spot of it's father, it implies it's an even chocolate brow, doesn't it?.

I've attached the picture of Oklahoma Bandit.
Maybe the label in the garden was wrong?
Or Virginia Messick made a mistake when discribing her iris?
