I saw this in this pdf. (p.2) https://law.resource.org/pub/us/cfr/ibr/002/ansi.b20.1.1957.pdf

I suppose it has something to do with some kind of extended grotesk font, but I can't figure out which one is exactly. I tried Akzidenzk Grotesk but the counter of the letter R is narrower and the aperture of C is tighter and some other minor differences. 

Does anyone know what font is this?

As always, I appreciate your help!
