Here it is:


It isn't Gill sans (the R isn't wide enough), nor Myriad pro. It is an older font, this piece was created in the early 1990s.

I think this one might be difficult to pinpoint exactly. I'm getting a few fairly close matches, but it's always the 'R' that isn't quite right :(

Here are the 2 I found that are close. The The R is right, the C might need modifying slightly. Being as the source is so low res, I couldn't tell if there were serifs or not so I included the top version also.

Copperplate certainly seems close, I can't decide if I'm seeing serifs or not, which is why I dismissed it when it first came up in my search. (The sans serif copperplate -- I think it's done by Larabie fonts is a newer font and doesn't fit the timeline.)

I'm going with copperplate which means BornKIlr gets to be the winnah. Shoot me your mailing address.

Yes, I exhausted all identifying means before posting this thread.

Sweet! Glad to help. At my old job I had to constantly redraw customer's logos from lo-res images, and knew fonts pretty well. I've been out of there several years and don't recognize them quite like I used to.
PM with address sent

I have been in Type Development at Adobe for over twenty years, but my area of expertise is not Western type. Although my heritage is not Asian, I specialize in CJK (Chinese, Japanese, and Korean) type.

Anyway, the C (its terminals), R (its leg), and W (its center portion) are the key letters to focus on when making a match with an existing typeface.

I suggest that you post your image to the Type ID Board of the Typophile Forum. See: Type ID Board | Typophile
