      Not really old - I see the "@" sign!!!
      But nice found!

      the @ did exist prior to the world of the internet - my mother's typewriter circa 1968 has one.

      It's a great find though.

      BTW, this seems to me to be crying out for notes:

      "A is for 'abecedarium'"
      "B is for 'blog'"

      etc, (though, of course, with more interesting notes).

      An old three throw / three glyphs per character job. The weathering is good locking, but it probably doesn't work anymore.

      (Seen looking at your calendar.)
      Seen in your archives. (?)

      Terrific image, and thank you for releasing it under a creative commons license. I thought you'd like to know that I'd just used it on a blog post, at www.technovia.co.uk/2010/01/the-future-of-journalism-its-.... Thanks again!

      1536: Francesco Lapi, a Florentine merchant, uses the @ symbol while penning a letter. It’s the first recorded use of the “at” sign outside a monastery.
