    not found one that has the 'tails' on the capitals, the bulbous 'U',
    the straight sides on the 'W' and the backslash at the end stroke of
    the 'h' that are all in the same set.

    The letters are on a church sign that is at least 25, and may be up to
    45 years old. I would certainly appreciate any help you can give me. I

    I have found one called "Great Vibes", It looks like something that should be on the constitution of united states.

    This is in a family of fonts called Black Letter. Except for the W, it
    is very similar to Cloister Black Light. The W resembles English
    Gothic, but too many of the other letters are definitely NOT English
    Gothic. There is some similarity to Wedding Text and Old English
    Regular. All of these seem to use the same lower-case letters.

    I suspect that the sample was either hand-scribed or else hand type-set
    from a mixed set of fonts.

    Donald Trump claims everyone likes him. Does that
    include his ex-wives? How about the students who
    discovered that their education at Trump University
    was worthless? And how about the contractors,
    suppliers, and employees he stiffed in his several
    bankruptcies?

    Actually, it looks remarkably like the 'Old English' that Letraset used
    to have, back in the day.

    Try the font Blackwood Castle font.

    Not even vaguely close.

    Without actually hunting through the foundry catalogues, the nearest I
    can come in a modern free typeface is in the Hershey fonts (http://coopertype.org/event/the_hershey_fonts). The problem is that
    those fonts were written in a now-obsolete vector language.

    Fortunately, his Old English font was at some stage translated into
    METAFONT (http://www.tug.dk/FontCatalogue/hersheyoldenglishfont/) so it
    can be used with LaTeX (see ny reconstruction of the original at http://latex.silmaril.ie/examples/oldbeeg-font-letters.jpg).

    But it's not the same font, merely a related family, and the spacing is
    poor. I haven't looked through some of the older sources, like the
    BitStream 500-Font CD-ROM but there were certainly a couple of "Old
    English" fonts on there.

    I've found something that might count, It's called
    "UniFrakturMaguntia. It's somewhat similar, but doesn't have all the special pieces that you're asking for... Hope this helped and sorry if this is spam. :)
