    Hi Princess,
    the commercial font is called "Fette Fraktur". And there is also a free substitute out which is called Proclamate. Have fun.

    Other closes [and the list is certainly not complete] are Berliner, Frankenstein and as you mentioned the Barron ... should fit the princess ...
    The A is cernainly another font. The outline 'Yold Anglican' is very similar. The use of that s is a rarity. It does not fit at all.
    Maybe thet wanted to protect themselves agains copycat, making a weird combination of fonts? Or maybe the other way around, is this a copycat claiming not to have copied the original?
    No clue. Never heard of the thing. What is it?

    OK. First on the A: I gamble that thet swapped the Fette Fraktur A with the old Anglican for readebility as the Fette Fraktur A may not be recognized by many as an A.
    Still, why swapping the s? The thing simply does not match with the rest of the text. It's a dissonant. Anyway the one that comes closest is the Engravers Old English. Exept for missing the dionagal line. Maybe that got lost in the scan? There are tons of copycats of the Engravers Old English around. Have a look at these and be amazed.
