One of my favorite numerals. It’s so bottom heavy with that massive serif, and the “flag” ornamentation at the top is such an interesting shape. The face has weathered beautifully, with a great mixture of tones. It’s always fun to find variations of forms that can tend to be a bit repetitive and stale.
