Do you know this letterpress font?

The text is not important. I need the name of the font.

Hello Georg,
I don’t know the name of the font, sorry.
But just in case you are interested in similar digital faces, here are a few:
Goodfellow
Rubens
Fiorello
Macbeth

The Offenbach Klingspor Museum knows a "Zeitungs Grotesk" from Bauersche:

Seems it was designed by Otto Weisert:

The name is rather generic ("Newspaper Sans" for the non-German-speaking world) and there may have been more than one font design under that name.

Perhaps this link can get you further:

(Depends on how close you live to Wolfenbüttel.)

First of all:
Thanks a lot for your support.

@ Florian
No, I just need it to classify this font for the font collection of lead fonts on my website: http://www.bleisetzer.de/schriftensammlung.html

@ Andreas
Thanks for the links. The problem: They show some data, but no scan of the font.

I found a "Zeitungs Grotesk" on http://www.global-type.org/ from Lars Kähler:

It is very close, but my font is more bold, I guess.
Well.. we'll see...

Georg
