Notes:

Black-letter (Old English) letter C from English gothic Letters, 15th Century. The counters have reversed oak leaves drawn inside them. Note, this letter probably looks more like a T or J to most modern readers, and if you flipped it, it would make a B. As a result, try to use it only at the start of words that are unambiguous.
