Type identification

I recently acquired a partial lowercase font of a 4 point roman type and need help with its identity. The type looks to have been cast by ATF, it has a single dot cast into the body and a single nick close to the bottom. It is a non-descript roman that is lighter and thinner than the Century Expanded shown in the 1923 ATF catalogue. The font included the British pound sign. I know there couldn’t have been many fonts cast in 4 point. Typoholics please offer your thoughts.

There were actually quite a few fairly generic roman 4 pt. faces cast. A very good proof of your specimen would be needed to try to determine the exact name of your font. I have some 4 pt. type in my shop, but even more amazing is one font I have of 3 pt. type, caps & lowercase with ascenders and descenders!!!!!!!!
