Tbh....the top of an R and the bottom of an X sounds like a R printed strangely. Presumably you tried R?

Normally, it would be the correct key. Since the key found by MJB doesn't match the key on the COA sticker on an OEM PC, it would most likely be the SLP key instead.
Yep I guess that is right Shawn if you mean the code is installed by the seller. The ones I have tested are ones that I know that either I have installed so it has to be the same as what was on the OEM packet /box I installed. Another was one that I pestered the seller for and that one is correct and I also know it gives up the codes for any Office or other Microsoft stuff I have installed

I did find the other key finder Belarc was not on the money though and I am going to try some of these on OEMs I have installed too just to see how they go. 10 best free product key finders | TechRadar

Having said that I still reckon that the sellers of machines should attach a COA label - let one know the correct code - send an install disk anyway it would save a lot of this nonsense.

You do not want to have much of the key posted.
Okay, I'll just blur out the remaining characters using FastStone Image viewer or Photoshop.

Yeah, a couple of months ago I was trying to diagnose a W7 update issue after a restore on a new HDD. I gave MS the COA using/guessing R as the character in question and was told to call the manufacturer. Called Fujitsu and they told me that they had no way of knowing and questioned as to why MS would advise me to call them.... tbh, they (Fujitsu), seemed pretty clueless in general.

That's an odd one alright, have you tried R or X? I would try Q and 9 too.

It's even weirder when viewed with all the other characters because they're all unmistakable.... Makes it really stand out.... My best guess is either R or X.

I'd say it looks more like an "R".
