    They're all starting to look alike to me. I need the "THE KINGS" one. I just traced the "Mutual" part. Wouldn't mind knowing its name though.

    I'm going to bed now. Hopefully the font fairy will come in the night.:Big Laugh

    "Mutual" is a rather attractive font.

    The Mutual font highly resembles Gerber Koloss.

    It is a nice looking font. I like bold fonts though. Koloss is close. I traced the thing but like I said, I wouldn't mind knowing what it is.
    After another look, I think maybe someone cut the top and bottom off Kloss to get a square edged font out of it. They did the same thing to Garamond in "THE KINGS" I think. It could be a different version that I have but the S appears modified as well as the K and T.

    Kollman is the name of that font. It came from a collection called Expresiv Fonts.

    No, actually the original name of the font is Koloss. Expresiv Fonts was a ripped off set of clones out of a company in Illinois that licensed them to Tiger Direct. Tiger Direct used the Expresiv name.
