Old Dutch banknote

I am fascinated by the typography of the first half of XX century. This is a gorgeous example.

Can someone help me to find this font? Or maybe something similar?

Thank you.

Sorry, but I strongly suspect that everything but the line “Amsterdam, 18 Maart 1947” is actually calligraphy, not typesetting.

For the all-caps text, Nyfors is similar. Not finding anything particularly close for “De Nederlandsche Bank.”

Dear group,

Anyway, do you have a suggestion for a font that could be similar - I love the lowercase "a"

Unfortunately the typefaces I found that shares a similar construction of |a| couldn’t really be considered similar for the rest (starting from the lack of Italics): Celtics Modern, Gandalf.

It reminds me a little of the a from Windsor (and its contemporaries and derivatives) or Milton, but, again, nothing calligraphic.
