Need some helping eyes and brain to identify a font, usual websites has nothing of it. Below the image of the font i'm looking for, it is similar to Gill Sans Shadowed or URW Umbra but with the main difference that the shadow-3d effect is ONLY on the right and NOT below the letter. It was used in the 70's.
Thanks for any help.

Could possibly be something hand drawn. Do you have other examples of its use?

No other examples, and the typeface is very precise, despite the paper being really worn.

Yes, it could be art, not a font. Back in the old days before PC's and such, making a fancy header or logo was pretty much a graphics designer deal.

That's what I'm thinking. Generally—in most cases—the upper portion of the R and P are going to be the same width, which they're not here. And the width of the T isn't proportional to the other letters. I'm guessing this was done back in the day of T-squares, triangles, and Rapidograph pens.

I was in the printing business for quite a few years and don't recognize that typeface. I agree with Jon that it's likely not a font but a one-off creation from a graphics designer.

That was my suspicion too, i'm not a newbie on fonts but it never happened to me before to come out empty handed on looking for a specific typeface. Ok, end of the search.
