Looking for a typeface to use that is similar for my 3d packaging assignment. the g is what is throwing me off.
Most likely, the sign is hand-painted, and the typeface doesn't correspond to anything you'll find in a type specimen catalog...
It looks like a condensed version of Doric or Doris. Because of the camera angle it's tough to tell exactly how these layout in line weight (thick and thin, or equal line weight). This may very well have been painted by hand but most sign painters tend to follow a formula or lettering style, especially for something like this where the company wants to keep a certain look for signs on their buildings, their trucks, etc. So while you may get some mild variations in line weight, the overall lettering style will remain the same.
