Visual perception is indeed a funny thing!
I never realized before this similarity between the euro sign and a
lowercase "e". But as soon as I read your words I started visualizing it.
I had always seen it as an ugly uppercase "E" with a certain "Cyrillic"
flavor (think at U+0404 or U+42D).
I think that this "Cyrillicity" in the euro logo is perceived by many other
people, and this probably contributed to the popular joke that the "EUR"
currency Id means "EUropean Ruble".
