Indeed I do not know any person (other than those who practice Copperplate, Spencerian, etc.) who have a handwriting with a 52 or 55 slant. 
@Vintage_BE

And now you do.

This is an example of my handwriting years before I had any interest or lessons in Copperplate or Spencerian--a quick note to my parents on unlined paper my mother saved in a scrapbook, which I now have.

Mike is right. I know a person who is a friend of mine who had very beautiful  Cursive lettering. As I remember He had his casual/ general  writing as 49/ 50/ 52 .. I wonder if he knew or learn anything academically to put his writing on to that slant??. He was not a calligrapher. I think some people did found that slant made their cursive interesting.
