Trying to figure out what typeface my neighborhood entrance sign has on it. It has this rounded, western thing going on with it. And seems to be related to Clarendon.

Here's a version with some exposure/contrast adjustment I used for WhatTheFont: bit.ly/o2pLJm

Original: bit.ly/n8Fz2F

Background: Someone stole the letter "N" off both sides of the street from the signs and I want to replace them!

Thanks for your help.

Those are dimensional letters, so who knows if an actual "font" was used, but it looks like one from the "Goudy" family.

Thanks, GiddeeUp!

I was looking at metal press Clarendon and it was kind of simliar:

I'll look into the Goudy set.
