Interceptor font by Device - original source?

Through the generosity of a gentleman who posts on here, he identified (mostly, anyway) a font for me. Interceptor by Device Fonts. It's essentially a revised version of STOP, by Aldo Novarese.

However, "Interceptor" is based on some other font (also a redraft of STOP). I'd like to know what that font is. Some photolettering typeface? Or? This earlier source would have been in existence in 1990, and earlier.

URW issued a digital version of Stop in 1994

Thanks for the note, but I'm not looking for Stop. I'm looking for this other variant - similar to Stop, but what was used as 'inspiration' for the Interceptor font.

Perhaps a better question would be to list all the variants based heavily on Stop. I would imagine the one I'm looking for has not yet been digitized, as I have all the current digital variants for reference.

Why don't you ask Rian via his site?

I did ask Rian.

He was very non-committal about his inspiration - which based on the dated samples I have are remarkably similar in many respects to his font.

Any more STOP-esq fonts produced in/around or prior to 1990? I'm guessing it is non-digital.

If he won't tell you I guess you'll never know.

Thanks Nick. Excellent assistance. Not to worry, I'll track it down.

What I mean is that Rian has produced many many ORIGINAL typefaces, so maybe Stop was the inspiration but he's not willing to admit that.
