In French too: children at school learn to use an horizontal stroke when
drawing a digit seven, and the oblique stroke is often curved to become
vertical at its central base (not placed at the left corner, and uses a
small loop to connect to the top horizontal stroke. I have always used
a medial horizontal stroke on my sevens, often starting it the top left
corner with a tiny loop too to create a vertical serif...
