    I can point you to , which
    includes a glyph for U+00AA, and , which includes a glyph for
    U+271D. I don't think it's necessary to post these glyphs to the public

    Most of the characters in the various parts of ISO 8859 were originally
    standardized before Unicode or ISO 10646, so the names were probably
    either created by the ISO/IEC subcommittees responsible for those parts,
    or found in earlier standards and adopted as-is.

    The merger between Unicode and ISO 10646 caused a few character names in
    Unicode to be changed to match the 10646 names.
