Need help identifying an old school "Iron On" font

I need some assistance.

Can you name this and better yet do you know where it can purchased as a font?

I appreciate the help.

Cheers...

So, I guess no one knows?

It's a great opportunity to recreate. I have a friend that recreated A-Z in vector format (based on all the Bboy crew images we could pull together). I was hoping to see what other punctuation marks and such existed alongside the letters and numbers.

I've found similar "Old English" fonts but none of them are exact (see attached).

I know it was an Iron-on letter but it must or originated somewhere. I just need to find the random rare font book it was pulled from or printer (late 70's china town, NYC).



this one found at "Michaels" currently...

The font Titania has some resemblance to it but is not identical. That's the closest I've got so far.

I've also been looking for this font. It was used on B.A.D.'s "Contact" single from 1989.

The iron-on felt "Old English" letters still haven't been made into a font?

[OT] That first image is from The Rock Steady Crew! I feel like it's 1983 all over again.
