Fleuron or dingbat font on an album art cover.

I have been searching all over the internet to find the fleuron/dingbat attached to this message. I feel like it could be a part of a font group of fleurons or dingbats, but I just can't locate which one it is. I found this on an album art cover and I would like to use it for a few different personal projects I'm doing. Thank you in advance for any help!

Regards,

Nate

They are actually “daggers” which you can find out more about here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dagger_(typography)

They are included in most commercial fonts. On a Mac, hit “alt + t” and you’ll get a dagger. The ones in your example have been rotated 90˚.

An example that is close to what you’ve posted would be Minion Pro Display Regular.
