Hi I would like to ask if anyone here knows the name of this type? I guess its probably old metal type not digitised yet, but if anyone can recommend something similar to this one it would be really appreciated. So far matches: Erbar Neo Mini, Avenir, Futura, Interstate, Century Gothic, Bauhaus - letter (b)... Thank you very very much in advance!!!

This is called Universal, and was cast by the foundry Grafotechna, from 1922 (source: Encyclopaedia of Typefaces by Jaspert & al.).
