This seems to match the Johnson & Smith specimen, at the top of page 196, in Kelly, taken from an 1834 catalogue. This would be a very rare specimen from the earliest days of US wood type.

Incredible find! What is the size?

Thank you for the reply!

This font is very similar to No.1 on page 196 in Kelly. However these are two different font. See the bottom of letter “N”. The bottom backside of “N” (No.1) is straight where my font is wavy. Any idea, any one?

Thanks.
