Identified by Loy (in his biographical sketch of Schroeder) as a "production" of Schroeder while employed at Central Type Foundry. Loy notes specifically (in a parenthetical remark for this face) that it was "after designs by Carl Schraubstadter).  Saxe, in his edition of Loy, shows it and dates it to ca. 1886.
Victoria was offered by ATF for several years after the amalgamation of Central into ATF. It is shown in the 1900 ATF Desk Book of Type Specimens , but not in the 1906 American Line Type Book . It was not assigned an ATF series number (these were assigned beginning about 1930). There is no mention of its lining characteristics (if there were any) in the 1900 ATF specimens from at least 1897 on.
