I've been looking for this for ages, I've found a few close ones, COMPRESSA isn't bad, but I'd like it spot on.

Thanks chaps. Amazing help! I think TicketBook is probably the closest. I can change a few of the characters to make it 99%. I wonder what they used originally?

Don't know the original typeface but if you only take in consideration the creation date, Helvetica Ultra Compressed is probably one of the closest you could get from this time period.

I agree, even though the S is considerably different, but then I immagine in this period there were just loads of variants of Helv Ultra Compressed and this was one of them.
