As part of these negotiations, Caslon personnel may have cut the punches and furnished matrices [strikes] of these fonts to BTF.
In the meantime, Rogers hatched a brilliant plan to “keep up appearances.” Not a type designer himself, he “designed” and patented three “new” fonts: a collection of banner-style faces [Table 1:28, 31, 34] combining the same existing sans serif caps with ornamental elements.

Single-Scored Gothic [USPTO D12035, 1880] is simply underlined; Double-Scored Gothic [USPTO D10752, 1878] adds an overline; Legend# [USPTO D12128, 1880-1881] offers finials similar to those of BTF Motto#, a light-face latin with “ribbon” options patented in 1879. The only elements claimed as new are the decorative treatments.
