    Zero match. It looks like it started out from two different fonts and was modified from there.

    More likely look at Old English and other blackletter type styles.

    Us old guys call that a "Bastardized typestyle" ....from WAY BACK. Btw, not a very good one either IMHO.

    Blackletter is a category of type that includes certain styles emulating lettering as it was done before the invention printing press. A classic example would be Old English. Other categories in the same vein are Fraktur, Lombardic, Celtic, Chancery and others. Here's a second link with quite a few Blackletter Fonts.
