Unknown 7-20-19

Here’s a cipher of unknown type. Two of my ID tests put the correct type on top, but the other test put it fifth on the list. Key search and PH hill-climbing both solved it without a crib. I’ll add a caesar-shifted crib.

  1. It continues ZKHQZDV. My Analyzer placed the correct type on top. My hillclimber solved it without the crib. I didn’t find a one-word key, but there are many two-word keys.

  2. The key is a single word on the word list I used but it looks like a partial word to me. Google says it’s a word, but I’ve never seen it anywhere.
