Ahh the magic binary signature. You don't need that for ASCII based PS
fonts, you are fine.

You are cool. It even has the correct encoding dictionary definition,
which shows it wasn't created by Fontographer. You can be sure it won't
blow chunks out of your postscript printer nor give problems with PDF
font subsetting. (Fontographer generated PS font code is... I have in
mind some four letter words). I've had to edit FOG generated fonts by
hand to make them subset with DVIPS and sometimes with Ghostscript, it
ian't fun.
