On page 75 of American Metal Typefaces, Mac McGrew lists "What's in a font" and includes Small Caps, and later in the list "Typographic Refinements... 'true-cut' small caps." What are these "true-cut small caps" as distinct from the small caps he's already listed?
(Note that this is about metal type, not computer "faux small caps" a la Microsoft Word.)
