This hand is very much like G.811.5-1 but is slightly narrower and slightly backward-leaning. The ascenders of l are slightly shorter than minims, and that of þ is much shorter; all ascenders show small wedges. Descenders are longer than minims. Minims show wedges and perhaps small feet. The back of d is straight and angled at about 5°–10°, reaching very slightly above cue-height. Horned e was used, the tongue of which is straight and rising, and the hook rounded. The shoulders of n are somewhat rounded, but that of r is quite angular; the downstroke of r is angled in slightly to the left. Long s was used.
