Looking to identify some antiqua font from WWI material

Recommended Posts



I'm looking to identify this antiqua font with contrast in thickness. I especially like the significant "5". I'm looking for a digital version if possible.

Thank you

Thank you for your reply. As the numbers are what I'm the most interested in using from this font, I like the Carmen font, but would prefer the numbers to be a bit more condensed as in the original picture (fx no "6"). Do you know of any font that could resemble the numbers better?

The typefaces I identified are the only ones I found with numerals that were similar to your sample.

If you like Carmen, simply change the horizontal scaling of the type when you set it to match the condensed look of the original....
