You noted it as Eloquent Swash from Jukebox but that doesn't appear to be an exact match. Interesting that 'Cabernet Swash' from Jukebox has nearly an identical ampersand.

It's really annoying that Veer doesn't let you Flont the "&" symbol. :\

i noticed Cabernet - but its only the italic version that has this - and that mark is italicised. – this one is straight.
Eloquent looks like the best quality cut ill get of this mark - though as you say - not exact.

if anyone knows the exact font id be really interested.

What it matches exactly is the alternate ampersand of Pistilli Roman (a film type shown in the 1985 Phil's Photo book called "Homage to the Alphabet"). The closest digital font I know to Pistilli Roman is Carousel, however Carousel does not have this alternate ampersand. It also has differences mainly in the lower case (e, g, k, v, w, x, y, z). Uppercase K and Q are different.
