Philadelphia Saving Fund Font

Hello folks,

I'm trying to identify the font used for an old 'Philadelphia Saving Fund' sign. It looks somewhat similar to Avant Garde Gothic Book and Futura Book, but is slightly different. Thanks for your help!

If this sample comes from a metal or hand-painted sign, it's possible that you aren't going to find a match with an extant typeface: you may only get bits and pieces to match.

For example, the sharp vertices on the A and V aren't carried over to the N. Also, the rigid carryover of the E-H midline to the P is rather clumsy.
