Unknown Typeface on Reed Organ Stops
By John A. Tuttle

Hi All,  I'm trying to find out the name of a particular font that's
used on the stop faces of a Cornish reed organ.  I've placed pictures of
some of the remaining stop faces at the link below.  If you know the
name of the font or where I might purchase faces with that font, please
let me know.

Thank you.

Musically,

 [ The typeface resembles "Blackletter" or "Gothic script",
