To me, it looks like Oklahoma Bandit with it's chocolate spot and yellow orange rim.
I've attached the 3 pictures together so they are easier to compare.

Hi Barb,
 
The problem is that the label you see in the photo is the garden label.  The person with the garden thought it was named correctly.  I don't know many of the small ones so I didn't realize that it was incorrect. 
 
Wonder if any one else thinks that they know what it is?  It is very pretty.
 
Thanks, Jan in Chatsworth

Nevertheless, it is a beautiful iris and I would like to have it, no matter what the name. Maybe someone where you took the picture would have the correct name?

Hi Loic,
 
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

Hello Jan
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?.
 
HUCK FINN
(Virginia Messick, R. 1991), Sdlg. M86-53. IB, 17" (43 cm), EM
"S. rosy brown blend; F. chocolate brown; beards brick bronze, tipped bronze; slight fragrance. Hilow X Oklahoma Bandit. Cottage 1991 "
OKLAHOMA BANDIT
(H. Nichols, R. 1979), Sdlg. 7861A. IB, 22" (56 cm), M-L
"S. bright tawny gold, claret base; F. same, washed claret; orange-bronze beard; ruffled. Raspberry Ripples X Cherry Garden. LaCresta, Nichols 1980 HM 1982, AM 1984, Sass 1988."

    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?
    I love mysteries...
