I made this lettering years ago for a local fire dept and they need it again. I cannot for the life of me remember what this font was, nor can I find it. I lost alot of old lettering files years ago, so nothing to go back on. If anyone could help indentify the name of this font20231113_193538.thumb.jpg.fbc3e3beed4bb1f6403ddc3d8aa8cf5c.jpg, it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks In Advance!

Century Oldstyle Bold, with a modification of the M (extended the vertex below the baseline).

Kevin, thanks for the reply. I thought that too, but the E in the Century font just doesn't seem spot on.
