Restored and refined by Jim Parkinson

That is true, Jim Parkinson did restore it, but is there a Font that it is based on or would Jim have created this from scratch? In perticular the Capital Z, N and H. I have not seen other BlackLetter fonts like it; not yet. Jim has the font Amador but it is not the same as this.

I've never seen a Z like that before either. The exact logo you've posted is no doubt custom lettered and not a font.

If you can find example of the masthead before the refinement you could see if the Z was part of the restoration.

There's more than a couple of black letter experts around here, hopefully they can shed some more light.

Jim doesn't need templates of any kind ... too talented if you ask me. ;^)
