Plastic quick-change Marquis Letters...

I found these plastic letters at an antique store and scanned and screenprinted them. The font is very familiar, yet hard for me to ID. Would love tho get the whole alphabet (they were missing many at the store)

This is variant found on a vintage box for the stock-market card game PIT.
I think it's beautiful.

These are all close, thank you. I guess I was wondering if it had a metal typeface origin or not. It looks more refined than any of these digital versions. Even the Fantablock Beveled is not quite as nice I think. The R is more balanced looking to me.

So how old is the original piece, at a guess? Was it screened?

The screen print is something I made from plastic sign letters.

But I just found the company that makes them I think:

That 'C' looks right, and a set of 50 is $55. I may just go this route. Still doesn't answer the question of what face it is exactly...but i suppose I'll ask.

My apologies. I thought that they were something older. Good Luck. Nice work, by the way.
