This is a custom font named GT-Ribbon-SC700 which is used for aluminum letters casting. You can test it here:
I don't know if it's available to purchase for general use.
If anyone knows how to acquire a usable version without recreating it, I would appreciate the info.
Recreation seems the most feasible way of doing this. The font has similarities to Futura http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/linotype/futura/ and Twentieth Century http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/mti/twentieth-century-mt/ Both have close numbers as well as letters. Another good candidate is Geometron -- very good for the letters, skip the numbers. https://www.myfonts.com/fonts/marius-mitran/geometron-pro-angular/ Any of these three could be modified to replicate the design.
The numbers in Odessa https://www.myfonts.com/fonts/itc/odessa/ are pretty close if you delete the shadow effect.
I think I prefer Rimouski (the name of a city in Québec) http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/typodermic/rimouski/ to Odessa
Here is Odessa Plain, made by deleting the shadow from Odessa
I'd have to agree that "Odessa Plain" looks to be a closer match.
Yes, and since the shadow is never connected to the digit, deleting it is quite easy.
Took under ten minutes in Fonlab. Minor adjustments for a closer match, such as reducing the serif on _1_ should only take a few more minutes. The time required depends on whether an absolutely perfect match is desired.
