Thanks marcox, it seems like a version of frankfurter but maybe custom. Anyone else know of different versions of Franfurter that existed in the past?

It appears in the Homage to the Alphabet as Lucifer No. 1. I've never seen a digital version.

It was put out by Phil's Photo - which is today Phil's Fonts. It's not the same as their font catalog and I think it's been out of print for years. Used copies always seem to be available, though.

Don't forget Quicksilver (available digitally, but with grunge, as Tight), originally named "Polished Sausage".
