Thank you so much, kind sir!!  That absolutely is it!  Wow.......really wonder why none of the AI font finders could come up with that one - doesn't seem to be all that obscure.

Again, thanks so much - I was going to sit down tonight, use one of the "almost but not quite" fonts I did have on a list..........and just start modifying the letters I needed myself.

It took a bit of manipulation in Photoshop to straighten the letters—font identification software looks for matches based on grid points, and distorted samples won't work.

That does make sense - I do usually have better luck with the AI finders when the image is square on.  Some of those websites allow you to manipulate the image a bit to get things as straight as possible, before starting a search.  That is a great tip, as well - use the source image to recreate a few of the letters on your own, straightening and cleaning up the lines first.......then throw that sample into an AI font finder.  Will have to try that myself next time!  Appreciate your efforts, thanks again!
