    Here is a discussion of some old Scandinavian (or at least Danish)
    currency signs:

    The forum is in the Scandinavian languages, but I suppose the pictures
    speak for themselves. Note especially this scan:
    The top row (from a printed book) depicts signs for daler, mark and
    skilling, respectively. As for skilling, I personally am content with the
    Eszett, U+00DF, but I have not been able to figure out how to best
    represent the other two with Unicode. Might these be possible candidates
    for encoding?
