Possibly custom and from Stone Sans ITC to me.

close, the broken R is the tricky element, unless its an alternate
the closest I found was Beaulieu...

This /R doesn't need actually to be an alternate, it could have been edited (and not really hard to do). To me, the real earmark here is definitely not /R but /S and /C and that's why I'm pretty convinced they started from Stone Sans, mainly squooshing it, reworking /R counter, extending /E top bar and adding triangular serifs to left top of some letters.

Hi Ryuk, your analysis seems plausible. I note the Stone Sans _P_ is already open and looks similar to the _R_ in the image. It's easy to pick up the leg from the _R_ and drop it onto _P_ for minor further editing.

As usual, excellent observation, Don. To me, that closes the case. Custom based on Stone Sans ITC.

There is also Ocean Sans (ExtraBold Extended) by Ong Chong Wah [Adobe, 1993] which looks very similar to Stone Sans.
The /R leg still needs reworking but I think the /S of Extra Bold Extended weight fits better to the sample.
