In this little Dover book "Wave mechanics", by Pauli, it appears to use h for hbar, and includes a footnote right on the very first page(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

"1. In these lectures we use the symbol h to denote the quanity 1.05 x 10^-34 joule.sec. In the older literature this quantity was usually denoted by [itex]\hbar[/itex]"

However, this is what I've seen in the newer literature too. Are the definitions of these constants in a state of flux?
