Letterform E

Large wood block letter E approx. 3″ tall and part of a collection in my house.

‘E’ is the most common (or highest-frequency) letter in the English alphabet and several other European languages, which has implications in both cryptography and data compression. In the story The Gold Bug by Edgar Allan Poe, a character figures out a random character code by remembering that the most used letter in English is E. Source: Wikipedia.
