Hehehe, looks like somebody put a lowercase "g" back in the wrong case.

Look about that now...

The r at the right is the Perpetua one (from Linotype. The one on the left (posted) has a serif on his shoulder. Where does it come?

Maybe that’s what Yves meant with “classic” Perpetua. Whatever that means. Maybe he’ll explain (?).

If this is pre-digital, as it seems to be, there might be details in the larger metal sizes that didn't make it to the digitization.

If you look at the Perpetua showing in the Jaspert 'Encyclopaedia of Typefaces' you will see the same flag on the 'r' as the posted sample. That was making me nuts until 'sim' raised the question, and I knew I was not alone.
