Here we provide some examples of various styles of the letter J.
There is only really one style of the letter J, but the shape of the letters changes according to how well formed or otherwise the loops are.
The first variation has a full loop top and bottom. The second has a full upper loop, but the bottom loop can be open or completely missing.
The final variation has a full bottom loop, but the vertical can end almost in a straight stroke with the loop coming off at an angle and being almost a closed loop, to being more or less a straight line, like the modern version.

Now for some lower case letter j's. These are all in the same style, the only variation being the size of the loops and the positioning of the dot, in a similar way to the lower case letter i.
The ending stroke can also vary slightly
