Ah, is there a more glorious creature than the unevenly stroked U? This one is just uneven enough to be obviously intentional. The curves at the base are regimented and even, a trademark of this typeface. I’d love to do a version of this typeface with squared off counters in the interior, it would make the face much more industrial, and it might looking interesting considering the variation in stroke weight.
The blemish on the lower left looks almost like a scorch mark; very odd.I love how the grain lied perpendicular to the vertical strokes, and it crosses over the counter. The shoulder is very clean, most of the blocks in this set have seen very little use.
