Unknown kanji, found in 1932 map

The map can be found at this link, with the text in question placed to the right of the Iberian Peninsula. Despite the existence of many similar kanji (notably, 逐, 遂, 隧, 燧, and 邃), I was unable to pinpoint the exact character being used.

  • Are you familiar with the concept of 旧字体?

  • @Leebo Although I know of it, I know essentially nothing about identification; as of right now, my only knowledge of 旧字体 comes from what tools like Jisho.org tell me.

It's the old/traditional form of 遂 (the second character you listed).

You can see it under Korean Hanja in this wiktionary page.

  • That's definitely it! Thank you very kindly for your help!
