Help identify retaining wall block

I am doing a masonry wall for a customer in Denver, CO area. I never do much concrete retaining block work but this guy and I are trading services and I'm going to owe him hefty at this point so he asked me to help cap this wall in his front yard to even things out. Blocks are 18" W x 12" D x I forgot to measure height but at least 8" if not 10" or even 12" Blocks have lip on top front edge so I don't know if they make a cap that sits behind it or if I have to cut off front lip (tried chiseling a spare block and it fractured in to the face)

Can someone please enlighten me what product this guy has? He got it with the house!

It's Allan Block. The cap manufactured for it has a recessed area to fit over the lip of the block.
