looking for Algerian Regular alt caps
0

I am trying to recreate a logo that uses Algerian Regular typeface
(yes, Algerian :( ...But it is for a Victorian-era store)

The original logo uses alternate caps for the M, A and R. Algerian condensed does have these letters. But the digital version of Algerian Regular does not. I have also found very similar letters in the Algerian Mesa Alt Caps typeface. But, they appear to be slightly different. I have an old Letragraphica specimen sheet with the algerian regular alternate letters. But, the M is missing. Below is a scan of the other letters.

Does anybody know where I could find these letters—either as a computer typeface, or a high-resolution copy of a specimen sheet?

Thank you!

Linotype’s Algerian Mesa Alt Caps has them all.
