New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
I'm looking for the identity of a font that was used for maintenance markings on German aircraft during WW2. I've tried seeing if the font is any of the DIN (Deutsche Industrie Norm, [German Industrial Standard]) set of typefaces but to no avail. I also checked it against the original Futura although very close it appears to be in between a condensed and a regular version of the typeface. Could it be a custom typeface designed for the Messerschmitt factory? My knowledge of Typography is slightly limited and I was wondering if any of you guys could assist? I've posted below some samples of the typeface taken from original factory documents.
Thanks in advance for any help.
