I saw something similar to this on a commercial while I was watching cartoons with my daughter. When she saw me working on this, she asked why I was making cowboy letters. I asked why she called them cowboy letters and she told me because the letters have spurs.

hahaha...ten points for your daughter! :D

Good work...totally agree with thalamic that "$" is very ingenious, perhaps I would made it the "S" with the same height than uppercase...
There are some characters like "E,F" that are more strait than others, and for me, this breaks a little bit the reading rythm... ( I´m talking about what I see on the sample, the download gives me problems...)
Anyway, nice work keep on going! :)

The standard of work offered on this site just keeps going up. Congratulations.
I assume the duplication means you're going to do a l/c?

@thalamic, @Axel Leyer, @intaglio

I'm a fan of all three of you and have admired your work here. To get such great comments from all of you is a huge compliment. Thank you!

I wasn't sure about the "?", I probably did 5 different versions before ending up with this one.

I agree some of the characters need tweaked. What might you do to the "E"?

I'm also not totally satisfied with the "Z". I really like the diagonal, but I had a hard time getting the spurs big enough without looking chunky.

I'd like to do the lowercase, but I haven't had time to explore it. I'm a little worried it will get too small and the "spurs" will not look good.
