I think it's a Crandall typewheel.
I'll probably come up with a good guess after a year in the typosphere.
I say "CRANDALL".
Not Moi? (Is that a big enough hint?)
Richard, I think that's something you whittled in a fit of steam-punk creativity just to bamboozle us.
It's not from a Crandall. And very steampunk it is, but I didn't make it (I wish I had the skills!). It's over a century old.
First I thought Crandall, then Commercial Visible... but it isn't either one! This is tricky.
Pretty sure I know, and I'm going to have to exclude myself as well. It came from the Shire neighborhood, didn't it?
You mean "neighbourhood."
Well, the hints are broad enough that this ain't fair any Moya.
