I overlooked the small B written in smallcaps (like Cyrillic ve).
In the attachment this is corrected.

Thanks Anonymous for this nice old book.

It seems FreeFont now has all the required letters. See attachment.

Pages 63 to 64 of the PDF at https://dspace.lu.lv/dspace/handle/7/18817 list the letters of Nanai Latin alphabet.

Omniglot says:
"Nanai was first written in the 1930s with a version of the Latin alphabet. Since 1937 it has been written with the version of the Cyrillic alphabet..."

But en.wikipedia.org says:
"The first books in the Nanai language were printed by Russian Orthodox missionaries in the late 19th century in a Cyrillic orthography. In the 1920s-30s, after several false starts, the modern written form of the Nanai language was created..."

And thefreedictionary.com says:
"A writing system based on the Latin alphabet was created in 1931"

OK, so evidently somebody made a Latin alphabet for Nanai. I would be willing to support that. Except...

Further searches on "Nanai Latin" have turned up nothing. What are the letters of this alphabet? I can't find them listed anywhere.

Hi Steve,

Seen from official code chart
I found the lowercase c-bar is indicated as “Nanai”, so I think this Anomymous is right.

Hello Anonymous,

The English Wikipedia page on Nanai language indicates only that it is written in Cyrillic alphabet or Chinese -- no mention of a cambrian sign.

Can you provide evidence of your assertian?

The so-called "Cambrian sign" is also used in romanization of Nanai language, so this letter should available in all styles.

Added to the Latin Extened-D range in regular styles of all faces.
In version control.

Hi Steve,

The US Federal Geographic Data Committee uses a "barred capital C" character to represent the Cambrian Period. This letter have its own code U+A792. But only a few fonts support it. For example, in general, Windows 8 can show this character by Seg*e UI only. FreeFont cannot support it, so please add support for this sign.
