Doesn't look so special but I just can't recognize it. Anyone?

Cheers.

Looks very similar to Futura Extra Bold.

Hm the 's' doesn't look like Futura.

Could be something like a very tightly spaced Kabel Black.

This appears to be an old Filmotype font from the fifties called Free. Flyer is similar, but not as bold.

BTW, Stuart Sandler (Font Diner, Mr. Retro) has begun reviving the entire Filmotype library, so Free may see the light of day again.
