Both I and J = 8 since they look so similar.
It's not exactly because "I" and "J" look similar. It's more because it was quite usual in the German language to use the capital letter "J" instead of a simple "I". The linguistic science calls it a swash letter. Especially in words like "Illustrierte" it was common to write "Jllustrierte" for a better reading, but often in names like "Jsabelle" or "Jtalien" too.

The Swiss Army used the letter "J" on plates of vehicles issued to the various infantry training areas.

I am looking to purchase a 1968 Walther PPK/s 22lr no import marks. In the best 95-100 condition. What would be a good and fair price, any help would be appreciated.
