I'm pretty sure this is an easy type to spot for someone who knows type. I would appreciate any help on this one from
Baxter Finley Barber & Shop.

Thanks!

Ryuk, thanks for the reply. Do you think it has this been modified? I see some slight cuts into the A, X, and Y where the joints meet.
Here is a larger picture.

Hi David,

I think the "slight cuts" you see, are just Ink-Traps:

fvilanakis, thanks for that link, it's informative. I'll keep looking at the font weights in Akzidenz Grotesk Condensed.
