Found it in Dan X. Solo’s The Solotype Catalog of 4,147 Display Typefaces as “Caligraph (Dundee) Initials,” aka Dundee and Dieter Caps.


Also found a reference and sample of Caligraph Initials here.


Unfortunately, no luck identifying a foundry or designer yet, but it did appear to be available in metal and eventually phototype, so it was popular for a time.
