I am looking to identify this 1930s fraktur font

Go to solution Solved by Dan Reynolds,

Recommended Posts

This font is used on various German forms and paperwork items from the mid 1930s to early 1940s. The source is the attached document.


I have tried various fraktur fonts, but none are a close match on the 'F' or 'k'.


Any assistance is appreciated in identifying this.

I think it is one of the instances of (halbfette) Hansa-Fraktur. You can read about its distribution on Fonts In Use: https://fontsinuse.com/typefaces/45735/hansa-fraktur


Ludwig & Mayer sold the design as Fraktur Alemannia, and in the photos of a specimen for that, you will find your D and F on its front page: https://oa.letterformarchive.org/item?workID=lfa_type_0226&targPic=lfa_type_0226_002.jpg
