New computing character from 1961

From: David Starner <>
Date: Fri, 19 Apr 2013 00:46:35 -0700 is a
1961 programming book on the programming language Jovial. On page 7ff
is a character I've never seen before; I'm pretty sure it's
overprinting, but I'm not sure of what. I've attached an image to this
email message.

The text says "The metasymbol 𒀗 signifies syntactic equivalence,
while the colon
signifies concatenation and the semicolon ; signifies selection between
adjacent elements."

Kie ekzistas vivo, ekzistas espero.
