Better Textured Fonts than Papyrus?

Well I have never liked papyrus for some reason. But I see a lot of fonts with similar weathered edges, especially for day spas lol, and I am wondering what are some better fonts with this look?

Some other examples might be maybe Operina Romano, Allegheny, Old Claude, MVB Celestia Antiqua...

Alternately use these hand filters to weather any font...

I have used ITC Tempus in place of Papyrus a few times

Not all of these are textured in the same way as Papyrus, but here are some rough serifs akin to the Old Claude and MVB Celestia Antiqua you mentioned:
Garamond Rough
MVB Gryphius
ITC Founders Caslon
Linotype Compendio
Grit Primer
FF Irregular
ITC Old Times
Marco Polo

@paul: oh i really like MVB Greymantle thanks!
@sii: Do you reccomend one set of filters over the others so that i don't have to buy 3?
@guerella: ahh tempus is nice but it is a bit too light for me i think.
@stephen: Thanks some great fonts there. btw is there a name for these types of textured fonts? (just so i don't have to refer to papyrus lol)

Weathered, antiqued, worn, rough, textured.

Here's FontShop's Photoshop tip for creating a weathered affect. Could modify it for your use.
