A font for a new citizen

Can anyone recommend a font that looks like the hand penned script in the constitution? A friend is becoming a US citizen on the 4th and I want to make him a personalized commemorative card.

I regret I haven't looked at the Constitution recently, but
ITC Johann Sparkling is beautiful and has that 18th century quality.

Also, The Type Quarry has quite a few of this flavor, including the new
American Scribe which is based on the Declaration of Independence script.

AND: Viktor Solt's other wonderful 18th Century script:
Voluta Script, but perhaps its pedigree is too European.

Sorry about that. I was a naughty girl and the internet took away my posting priveleges for a while.

Thanks for reminding me about Sparkling. Lurv it!
