Hi everybody... do you maybe know a font that looks like this?

I'm not good at cataloging this stuff, but if you wait a few hours the people who really know this stuff will come out of the woodwork, with more than you ever wanted to know... :-)

Here are some squared license platers:

Core's Sauerkrauto

Mueller's FE Engschrift
http://www.lineto.com/cont_cat.html?ID=159&dir_id=60

But the type in your sample is a fairly simple.
You might do well using a DIN, chopping off the
'G' and then rounding the corners:

FF DIN

Adobe DIN Mittelschrift

URW Fette Mittelschrift

Stephen, I hope you didn't take offense at "hours"...

Not at all. You were right. I'm over 6
hours late. See what happens when I sleep?

Thanks.

It's part of a 1909 heavy industrial machine :) Do you have a link to the font you were thinking of, or a hint where I can get it?

The DIN fonts are perfect! Not exactly the same thingy, but it has the right atmosphere, my example must be some DIN letters then.

Wow, thanks!

Here's one better:

PS- DIN is great. But buy the FontShop (FontFont) cut. The
weights are much more intelligently put together
than the other leading brand.

Looks like one of those license plate designs.
