Can anyone tell me what serif typeface was used in NASA’s original “meatball” logo?
What's up with the punctuation in the header?
Can you post a sample?
This has been here before:
I noticed that Largo Medium resembles this except for weight. I wonder if there was a Largo Black at one time?

I've been doing some digging with PAO at NASA HQ. They confirm that the meatball is a hand-lettered graphic created by one James Modarelli, agency employee, in 1958, in his spare time.
It would indeed make a very cool font.
