    I see some similarities to some of the various Caslon styles but no match. The way the serifs are terminated at an angle is rarely seen ... Garth Graphic being a good example but the sample is not Garth Graphic.

    You might want to check at the Gemini Letters website. they have several letter styles offered which I have never encountered outside of their catalog.

    No Luck

    There used to be a guy here did alot with gerber stuff 8 yrs ago.
    Alot of dimensional letters.
    Thats why I thought it might be gerber.
    There is a font called raleigh that is close.
    thats where I am at.

    If you look at the top of the "A", the top and bottom serifs on the "C" and the angular cutoff of the serifs in the original sample versus anybody's version of Times, you will see that they are not even close to being the same.

    The sample shown exhibits characteristics of the "Caxton", "Garth Graphic" and "Raleigh" families. This may be a "*******" font comprised of all three. The secondary copy line appears to be condensed in a program judging by the left stroke weight (of the "A") in relation to its cross stroke weight. I can't tell from the picture if the letters are Pin Routed or Blade Cut. If the inside corners of the "A" are pointed tight, I'd say the letters are saw cut and may be a semi-custom rendition of any of the three fonts mentioned, and created by the individual doing the cutting. I have been known to do this on occasions, so its entirely possible that these letters were also. I have not found any fonts that match 100%. the three mentioned are the closest so far. Now, I too really want to know what it is. At this point, I'd say pick one of the three and do a little node editing where necessary.
