Trying to find out what font this is. Little help!

It looks like Abalone by David F. Nalle (Scriptorium Fonts, 1993)

I found it using Find my Font - http://www.findmyfont.com

Cochin, horizontally scaled.

EDIT: Fivos is right, it's Abalone... which actually looks like a scaled Cochin.

So is Abalone made from scratch, or swiped from Cochin?

AFAIK, all Scriptorium fonts are made from scratch, although the designs themselves are very often imitative.

Here's a comparison of Abalone's and Cochin's G:

Taking into account some details (top of /t/, bottom right of /a/) I think Cochin scaled is a better match.

@Hrant: From the many small differences I can see, I suppose this is not -at least- an outline theft.

Thanks for checking - I agree.
