Stephen Coles's picture

I concede to Kent. Chances are he had the answer
before me, despite my quicker posting.

No, no. Stephen. You got there fair and square. You even linked to a sample. Go ahead. You post one.

Besides, I'm wasting a client's bandwidth right now. I need to pack up and go home. I wouldn't be able to get something together for several hours at least. You should go ahead and keep the game going. Really, I insist.

Yeah, this is a good test/data source for MyFonts. Hey, they should pay us. Bwahaha.

Barring an unexpected revelation from Jared, I guess either Kent or Stewf is it. Come on, guys, don't make me actually do my work-work this afternoon...!

cheshiredave's picture

Hmm...I don't think so, unless the sample is rotated. I could be wrong.

Damn. That was my quick

I knew I was right to be scared.

guessing Fedra Sans ItALic dollar sign

or Meta

I think the core of this challenge is that it's a roman face with an angled broken vertical stroke of the dollar sign. There are plenty of fonts with a broken stroke on the $, but in all the italics I've looked at, the upper curve is to the right of the tail, as opposed to directly above like the sample here. So it must be a one-of-a-kind design -- I just can't figure out which one.

So, a plea for a hint: is it available on MyFonts, Stewf?

Eric Sans from Mr. Bruhn?

based on little gif.
typetester at fountain doesn't show
dollar sign on my OS.

Stephen won it, in my book. C'Mon Stephen, you got us all quakin' in our boots over here....

Stephen Coles's picture

Okee. Release the hounds!

Stephen Coles's picture

MURRP! <- my best attempt at an incorrect buzzer

Stephen Coles's picture

No to MyFonts. No to my Tiffany.

Stephen Coles's picture

A respectable guess, bj. But no.

Stephen Coles's picture

Hmm, never seen Signa's dollar character. Nice. But no.

Jared Benson's picture

ouch! that's gotta be it. nice job, Peter!

Stephen Coles's picture

Peter is da winner!

I thought I'd be typically self-centered and pick a font that
would be hard to catch if you hadn't been reading
Typographica religiously in the last few weeks. I'm lucky
Mr. Bruhn got it, 'cause I'm his biggest fan.

We should travel en masse to MyFonts and fill 'em up with much-needed keywords.
