Perhaps 1920s-30s style German Script

I extracted this image from the letterhead of a controversial website with the same name. It was in a gaudy gold on blood red presentation, which I eliminated.

The design looks similar to some German script fonts from the 1920s and 1930s that are fairly regular in style and were set in metal type. But I did not find a match in Jaspert's _Type Encyclopaedia_.
Repeating letters _m_ and _i_ seem to be identical. The good fit of the tails with following letters might be produced by the usual methods used to create a digital font
I would welcome any suggestions.
Thanks .

Not from the 20s or 30s--a slightly modified version of Lucida Handwriting, designed in 1992:

Why so it is! Thanks Kevin.
In my defense, for missing this I note that the designers, Veronika Elsner, and Günther Flake, are German. Just got the date wrong by a few decades :)

Not quite. The designer is from the US: Kris Holmes. Elsner & Flake are only mentioned as the ‘designer owners’ (which probably means that they are allowed to make money from this design or something like that).

Thanks for the clarification.
In any case I like the script. Used it many years ago but forgot all about it.
