It's some cut of Caslon. Can you tell us the age of the sample, which would help narrow it down?

More letters would be helpful. Especially some of the upper case ones. And knowing more about the source of the image, and its age would also help.

It looks like ITC Founders Caslon (probably #12 or #30) but it's a terrible digitization

Caslon Old Face from Bitstream also looks close

Thanks very much Birdseeding, bowfinpw and fvilanakis!

@fvilanakis—it looks much like your suggestions.

@Birdseeding, bowfinpw—the sample is taken from a letterpress artist's publication from the 90s. But, I'm not sure about any of the specifics of the cut of the type.

Thanks again very much, I greatly appreciate your input.

Take care,
