Looks like a messed about version of Rockwell

Charmed, I'm sure.

Gary: You really think someone put's so much effort into removing serifs?
For example: Look at the capital I and the y.

Nick: I can't find Charmed anywhere. Can you help me find someplace where I can download or buy it?

I still think it's parent is Rockwell light. The arch of the n and m
isn't rounded as in Beton or Serifa. The bowl of the a is identical.
The y and I are the easiest to modify.

This font takes about 15 mins to replicate using Rockwell light
and deleting some points here and there

But let me put my money where my mouth is
Just what is the point to this typeface?

I think a customised (either proprietary or a rip-off) Rockwell is indeed a safe bet.

BTW Selma, I'm pretty sure Nick was referring to the content of the message, not the typeface it is set in. ;^)

Bald Condensed: Hah! Perhaps... Too bad if people can't see the humor. ;)

I got a tip in another forum and it looks pretty spot-on:

Let's call this one busted.

Nilland contributes zero to the world of type design.
perhaps my efforts do to but mine are not based on
someone else's outlines

I think you're right. It's probably Rockwell in my original picture modified the same way you did. Even though Nilland is the font I've been looking for. No need for modification.

Indeed I was Yves.

I was saying it in the style of a Victorian lady meeting somebody she's not quite sure of in one of those Merchant Ivory films.
