    The capital "C" in the middle name needs to be corrected to a capital "K" on a 1912 high school diploma. I can't identify what the font is. Does anyone know? Thanks.

    I'm going to guess this is hand-done, especially judging by the date and the "r"s, "a"s, and "e"s.

    yeah i'll second JB,
    the lines in the M and the C aren't straight.
    looks like a good artist.

    I've always used "Certificate"

    So are you saying whoever did this used their personal artistic talent and the capital "K" is not predictable?

    Buck, of course it is predictable how the K may look like. This is - as Justin said - handwritten and a free interpretation of gothic lettering, in the anglo-saxon world referred to as Old English / Blackletter.
    That is, for the capitals. The lower case used is a mix of gothic and fraktur.
    Did you have a look in the Old English department here? You should have found the Collins Old English, which would be a perfectly good start to draw a K.

    I think the "K" is purrfect! Thank you!

    You probably need to work a littke on it because it is a bit too purrfect to match with the handwritten text. Good luck.
