Copperplate, Engrosser's Script, Roundhand Calligraphy / Lack of fluency

I have to admit to a contradiction here. I'm no lover of Spencerian minuscules with their erratic shadings. However, the Spencerian majuscules are beautifully constructed and in fact, with minor adjustments, look at least as good as the Copperplate originals and sit very well with English Roundhand. This is a case in point -  a spectacular Spencerian majuscule enhancing Copperplate minuscules. Just my opinion!
