Horribly small sample, but a 3D lined font, very similar to Letraset's STACK, but in lowercase. Would have been from circa 1973 or 1974.
I'm reasonably cetain that it's a Photo-Lettering face, but I can't tell you the name...
Nick is right. It is called "Oprescu Prisma", and it is shown in Vol. 3 of the Photo-Lettering "Alphabet Thesaurus" printed in 1971.
