In FreeMono, U+2445 OCR BOW TIE looks like two triangles pointing to each other, touching only at their very tips. The bow tie asterisk is supposed to look more like U+16DE, i.e. as if it could be written in one stroke. See https://www-01.ibm.com/software/globalization/gcgid/ocrsym.html (search for “SO120000”) and https://books.google.com/books?id=_4ajBQAAQBAJ&pg=PA625 for examples.
