Does anyone know the name of this font? Help is greatly appreciated :)
It's unfortunate that those are the letters you had, because only the R is much of a clue. Do you have more samples?

Thanks for replying. Not sure why I posted such a small sample, sorry about that. I'll attach the full poster. It's not Gill Sans is it?
Looks like lettering.
Ditto what Jan said: WPA posters were often hand-lettered. In the next few months, I'll be coming out with a series of typefaces based on WPA poster lettering, but none of them matches your sample.
Oh, I see. Beautiful lettering and funny coincidence that you're creating typefaces associated with WPA posters. Thanks to both of you.

Thank you, those are excellent additions.
Also from Letterhead, Union Thug.
Probably the most common font used for this look on book jackets is Agency Gothic.
