      Are you sure this is Franklin Gothic? The bowl of the P looks a bit high, the aperatuce of the C a bit small, and the S a bit wide. It could conceivably be another similar gothic from the turn of the century, like Inland Gothic.

      Good catch. Switched to Gothic No. 578 and added some info to the bio of this Franklin Gothic precursor.
