(distressed serif) Font ID, playse

The only distinguishable characteristic (that i can tell) is the uneven, brush-like stroke of the crossbar on the letter "A"

P.S. - this is for the yellow copy only! Ignore "CHOPS" as it's obviously Papyrus (a particularly dreadful typeface, no?)

Autotracing a sample of a wide range of fonts with the settings very loose would result in this...

I think it's from a small selection of designers, starting with Arthur Baker, Philip Bouwsma or Cynthia Hollandsworth (?), who have done calligraphic fonts, such as Tiepolo, Hiroshige, Marigold and Trieste. I need to go searching a bit...

After looking at everything I could find that was calligraphic I think this looks more like Arthur Baker's work than anyone else I could see. However, I could not find an exact match anywhere at MyFonts. Pretty close were P22 Matador, New Amigo, Duckweed and Oakgraphic (all at MyFonts, I got lazy making links). The only pretty close non-Baker font I found was Waters Titling, especially the condensed version.

If Bert's right about being able to do this with autotracing, then I would say Waters Titling might be my candidate, but in terms of actual fonts, Baker's work seems much closer in most stylistic details. It would be easy to believe this was a new Baker font.

Yeah, I do remember Oakgraphic being one of the similar typefaces that i had bookmarked on myfonts, while searching for a match. I'll go take a look at the others you mentioned now and see what I can come up with.

Thanks for the research =)
