Any suggestions to replicate this hand-drawn type?

This is circa probably 1900 or 1910. Almost definitely hand-drawn.

Any typeface suggestions? Looking especially for:
- The tiny leg (and corresponding large counter) on the R
- The slanted legs on the M
- that funky Y!

Thanks!

Neutraface has the R

Geometric 231 has the funky Y

And some cuts of Futura have a passable M.

Now as for a single face that has it all... ummm... ;)

Considering the relative clumsiness of these lettering, I would probably choose some freebie. Anyway, a list of loosing similars: Market Deco, Mouse Deco, Frontage, Examiner, City Of, Lightyears, Marlowe
