Type identification


I recently acquired a very nice font of wood type, 6 line. I have tried to identify it by looking through G. E.’s The Art of Wood Type, and R.R.K.’s American Wood Type and, even though this font is marked with the Tubbs, Michigan makers’ mark, I looked through the reprint of Hamilton’s Specimen Catalogue, where I did find a similar face in their No. 657, class O. Similar, but still very different in some of the character shapes.

Any help finding the specific name for this face would be very much appreciated.

Thank you,

Hard to tell without seeing it, Jim! :-)
