Looking For Help Identifying Typeface

I flipped the image so it’s easier to see the letters. Wondering if anyone recognizes this? I don’t have the complete set.. just some orphans. I’ve gone through some type catalogs and can’t find anything close.

Caxton Initials designed by Goudy in 1905, cast by ATF (per McGrew, page 74). These are initials intended to be used as the first character of a sentence or paragraph, so were not cast in large text fonts.

Thanks so much Bob - I really appreciate it.

Goudy issued his Lombardic caps in 1929 for Lanston Monotype. I have complete fonts of 18, 24, 30 and 36 point for sale if you’re interested.
