Swing and a Miss!

15 line Broad-Stroke Cursive

According to Mac McGrew, this typeface was produced by both Lanston (American) Monotype and English Monotype, though the latter called it Script Bold. Script faces, particularly in metal type, are rather delicate – the kerns (the part of the letterform that hangs over the body or slug) damage easily. Broad-Stroke Cursive was designed without kerned characters, adding to its durability.

This exclamation point, or bang, looks like it’s dodging a punch!
