looking for old school grocery typeface for prices and numbers

MMux's picture

I'm working on a project where we need some old school style numbers for prices. Can anyone name the typeface in the image, or suggest an interesting equivalent.

Many thanks in advance as always...

The font ID experts are at http://typophile.com/typeid They will also suggest equivalents.

It’s not a typeface, but lettering.
Check out Font Bros., they have a lot of fonts based on mid-century American commercial lettering.

Mike: You might like to try Barrowboy, a typeface I designed based on market stall holders hand lettering: check it out at: http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/studio-k/barrowboy/

Hey Keith,
It has interesting counters to it. What time period inspired you?

If you are interested in a bit earlier periods (say, early 1900s), Laura Worthington’s Charcuterie has some good options.

http://www.dafont.com/paul-lloyd.d88 — Quite a few possible choices.

I haven't checked Lloyd's collection, but please do be wary of the quality and provenance of anything from Dafont.

While Dafont is one of the few free-font sites that take provenance seriously, they are still no more perfect than commercial sites. That a new font should go through acceptance testing ought to be standard procedure, anyway.

The Internet is so wonderful: it allows even people on different planets to communicate.

Suddenly, that explains a lot.

BTW, I like that typography.
