North Carolina License Plate typeface?

RG1976's picture

Although I've seen them hundreds of times, a few weeks ago I saw a North Carolina license plate that made me think of something: it appears that the typeface used on the words "North Carolina" on the plate is the same as the one used in the credits from "The Streets of San Francisco." Whether they are the same or different, what is the typeface called?

Thank you!

Not sure how that Paratype version differs, but you can get (perhaps) closer to the original Advertiser's Gothic, with the Monotype version, or the one from HiH, which is the heavier weight.
