Any ideas on the typestyle seen on this plaque? Similar to Korinna, but I can't quite pin it down.
Since these letters are manufactured, there is no reason to assume that they are based on a font. For the purposes of manufacturing the letters, changes might have been made, even if an actual typeface was the initial model.
If a company made this sign, they may have their own custom alphabet they use for this sort of sign work.
I couldn't find any serif font/typeface that matched this, looking at over 1,900 families in the Serif Guide.
My guess is custom for this.

I hate winning "stump Typophile." :( Still, thank you very much for your hard work on this, Mike.
You're right, Mike. This typeface is called "Architectural" and is used by Gemini Plaques. I don't know if it's commercially available.
