    I noticed a hand written euro sign with wavy strokes, consistently used
    by a person who is the chief accountant of an organizazion where I hold
    also a managing position (this meaning that I see a lot of these signs).

    The person in question is a retired Portuguese Air Force technical
    officer, who had a great deal of contact with british engineers. I note
    that his pound sign is similarly stricken.

    Attached two examples of this glyph, composed using Times New Roman, and
    also the refered pound sign U+00A3 (which is not distinguishable from
    U+20A4, as both have two strokes.)

    I may scan samples of the original, if there is interest.
