I have opened that link so many times to read it and then it gets so late I forget and close it cause I hadn't gotten to it LOL. So, it feels or seems like what I'm learning is technically called modern Copperplate since I have been trying to teach myself from Winters' book. Thank you so much for your reply it helped tremendously :D

I believe Ken has posted a sample of each somewhere, let me see if I can find it and will post a link.  ;)

I believe that this may be the posting you're referring to.

The same lettering, written with the same nib, in an oblique penholder, at the same x height for direct comparison.
I've copied it so often, the image has thickened slightly, but I think that it still demonstrates the differences. English Roundhand is first followed by Engrosser's Script.
