Printle: A Printing Word Game from Metal Type


I have no idea as to the name of this font and would appreciate any suggestions.   The pinmark shows BB&S, Chicago.   Thank you.


PS - The lower case letters c, f, g, and r, are very distinctive.   Thanks again.


As far as I can see it is a typeface called Lightface Runic, but I need to see the lower case a's and also the figure 4


there's a 4 in the upper righthand corner ... just not as clean as the others  ;)
can you spot it?

Found this example of Monotype Runic on the web:

Looks quite similar to me (although a condesed version).

would you by any chance have a pic of the entire set?
AJT thinks it might be close - but he wants to be sure!
