Here is another stunning member of the Antique Tuscan set I bought recently. I love the golden tone of the face of this block. It’s not often that I come across J’s that I really love, but this fellow is certainly a standout. I love the way the stroke ends on the right side, the way the end in curve in instead of being a flat line. There are more fingerprint stains on this block, though not as pronounced as those on the S I posted awhile back.
