Here is the entry for the A letteral in the US SignPuddle
dictionary:

  http://signbank.org/signpuddle1.6/searchword.php?ui=1&sgn=4&sid=5476&search=a&type=exact

Using the hint Steve provided me, I find the handshape for that
symbol on this page, showing "thumb side diagonal":

I've been taught that the A letteral is actually this BaseSymbol,
the "thumb side unit"
