    Tiz merely ŝe Long S & ŝe traditional Engliſh letter Thorn. When Engliſh firſt ſwitched from Runic to Latin letters during ŝe Norman Conqueſt in 1066, Th was uſed, ŝen awhile later ŝe old Runic letter Thorn (Ŝ) was adopted, likely to ſimplify or ſave ſpace. In ŝe 1450’s, ŝe printing preſs was invented in Germany by Gutenberg, who ſpoke German, a tongue lacking any Th ſounds. He failed to put Ŝ in his very influential typeface, ſo printers went back to ŝe old Th. Eventually, handwriting imitated print—& after ſeveral more generations, Ŝ was nearly forgotten by ŝe Engliſh-ſpeaking world. However, Ŝ was never officially removed from ŝe alphabet, as ŝe Engliſh tongue has no governing body, unlike ſome languages in ŝe world (I know countries like Germany & China have made official changes to ŝeir languages at times). Engliſh is ſhaped almoſt completely by ŝe common uſers. Now wiŝ ŝe internet, typing any letter is poſſible, ſo it feels really ſad to let a German guy who likely couldn’t ſpeak Engliſh dictate how we write everyŝing 500+ years later. Maybe he didn't include Ŝ in his printing preſs out of ſpite becauſe he couldn't pronounce it.

    Not interested.
    It can be had for $20 - 40 on eBay, I just checked on my eBay app minutes before this reply looking at buy it now and auction.
    I looked in my boxes of NES games- it's Simon's Quest that I have more than one copy of. I even looked in my boxes of Famicom games and I don't have the first one- just Famicom Castlevania 3. I don't have more than one of NES Castlevania (1).

    I'm not meaning to come off as an asshole to you. Trade is always better to me in the future if your looking for something, I don't normally sell.

    Ah well, it's only ŝe original game I'm looking for. Ŝanks for replying ŝo. I was conſidering picking one up on eBay but I figure I'd try here firſt as I've always had good experiences buying, ſelling, & participating in ſecret Santa events on ŝis forum in years goneby. Plus it's always nice to avoid eBay fees.
