So do you think it's stretched or something? Cause the proportions aren't the same (see "P").
Or is the sample pre-digital, so that nothing we find will be exactly identical?


Top: Original sample
Second: LoneStar
Third: Archive Antique Extended
Fourth: Hellenic Wide

You could add 58 Rodeo and FF Zapata if you wanted.

Nina, your sample of Archive Antique Extended looks very close, except for the tracking.

Another candidate is the old FontBank "Hefty"

Mike, agreed. One possible problem with Archive Antique Extended though
is that it looks like a "dirty" digitization; for instance, head serifs of "U" and "L"
don't line up.

Hefty is fun too. Ah, I enjoy this genre :)

Guess I'm getting predictable.  :->

Nina, you're right. The reason its slightly different is probably because there were many metal and wood types in the genre and only some have been digitized.
