Hamilton Mystery Gothic

I know this is a Hamilton face, but I’ve never seen anything quite like it. Any ideas on what it’s called?

Republic Gothic Series

Looks like it! Thank you.

Just to throw in some historical context.

The Republic Gothic Series was fist shown in Hamilton’s New Gothic Faces in Wood Type (c.1921–1927).

Republic Gothic Series—along with Poster Gothic Series and Liberty Gothic Series—included a range of widths in solid and outline to work as 2 color chromatics. These three gothic series types were the last original designs issued by Hamilton. 

The Republic Gothic Series included 12 styles.
