    I don't think it's a font. The "R" in particular has some visible glitches and the left stroke is less bold than the rest of it. More likely it was just three letters created from scratch by someone without a well developed attention to detail.

    I'm in agreement with Fred. I've never seen that as a font.....or remotely close as far as at least those three characters go.

    My 2 cents would have to be that's a custom font also.

    Thanks. The reason it's got those flaws is that I quickly drew it over a bitmap.

    Here is the original that I used to draw the B&W sample over.

    Thanks. So the consensus is that it is not a "font"?

    When in doubt ... always look for the PDF.

    Opening the PDF we find that it is, indeed, handdrawn and not a font. Attached is the logo extracted from the original PDF, enlarged and strokes expanded to paths.
