Another vintage font ID please

There look to be 2 fonts in this ink stamp type logo- any ideas for close or exact matches for the two please?

As always, really appreciate all your input!

Can't name any of these two unfortunately. Some suggestions of alternatives for "RECREATION": Euro Sans, Globe Gothic LTC, Radiant EF, Carisma, Oil Can, Castle

Spent some time in going through the usual suspects, and some lesser known ones, including digital efforts from the 1990s, and did not find a 100% match.

However, Carisma Semi-Bold or Bold, with width compressed to 80 percent, is almost a perfect match:

If you want to fish for similar fonts here is a Myfonts listing of "thick and thin" fonts.

Thanks Don for putting in image my suggestion for Carisma. No idea of what could be the other one?

Hi Ryuk, if the font for the center part was squeezed, then perhaps the font for the outer part was expanded. Problem is that at this scale it's difficult to catch any earmarks.

Personally, I think it's all hand-lettering. Look at how different all those S:es are. It might well be based on a font, though.

Carisma looks to be a good match for the 'recreation' part- thank you both.

Will try expanding as suggested by don...apologies for the image quality- attaching a close up in another post...dunno if it'll help at all...

Thanks again for your help.

Fair point birdseeding but I think diffs could also be due to the way the ink has taken to the fabric?
