    Looks like something from a dingbat collection or something.

    Before I get the 'Create it in five minutes response,' I'm pretty anal and want
    them to match perfect.

    Looks like the asterisk from whatever font is to the right of it. Try that first

    TRUMP MEDIAEVAL is the font....but not the asterisk.

    You need an anal intervention....because that's ridiculous, but I understand where you're coming from.

    Although I could see myself overlooking that, the asterisk is not the same.
    The reason why I thought it was a symbol of some sort it because I could
    swear I see it on 70's era designs. I thought it may just be a dingbat or
    something. I will continue to search!

    Maybe I will just replace the other one. They are right next to each other and I am just about anal to the point of obsessive compulsive when additions don't match perfect.

    Shovel... how can you tell that is Trump Mediaeval from just that one letter? Does not look like Trump to me and could probably be any number of serif fonts. Without seeing the serif detail, I say this one cannot be ID'd from one letter, especially on a letter that is not unique

    We should start a new contest... name that font, one letter only.

    Hate to say it, but shovel is incorrect on the font on this one, similar, but
    some of the characters do not match.

    Do you have just the regular Wingdings font which comes with Windows?
    I'm pretty sure it's just a dingleberry from there. Oops I mean dingbat, all this anal stuff gets me confused.
    Love....Jill

    Don't think I have that particular set of dingle berries.

    This asterisk matches to Times New Roman.

    That's what I would do.
    Just change both of them out.
