    "The Exclamation mark" (!) was the punctuation mark which didn't have a dedicated key until the 1970s. Before the mid-1970s, typists who wanted to write an exclamation mark into their text were forced to type a period, hit the back space key, and strike an apostrophe over the period to form a makeshift exclamation point.
