What font is this? Trying to find a similar, free Western Style Slab Serif font


Question

I'm curious what font is used for the word "TYPE" in the poster below. Any Ideas?

I already tried such services as WhatTheFont and What Font is, but I still couldn't identify the exact font.

Any free alternative would also suffice. I also like this font, but it's not cheep. :(

I'm going for a "Western Style" Slab Serif font. Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks!

Here's a good way to browse free fonts by theme (in this case, fonts tagged 'old western'):
