Can anyone help to identify this type face. Pin mark Johnson’s Foundry Philadelphia. Only have 1 of each letter so I assume it is a fancy initial set. Specimen books on line for Mackellar Smith and Jordan missing initial set pages.
Any help would be appreciated.

Centennial Script by Herman Ihlenburg, circa 1876. This script face was offered by MacKellar with both standard capitals and these fancy capitals in the font. Possibly they also sold these fancy capitals as a separate initial font, as I have a set like yours, too, though I haven’t seen any listings of the fancy caps as a separate font.
Thanks Bob for that bit of fast and great info!!
