    I thought it would be easy to recreate this, because I assumed it was a HelvBold Condensed, just tightening the kerning.

    The "K" and "W" are different and the X-Height is just a tiny bit off, I think.

    I tested Trade Gothic Condensed, DIN varieties, etc. I thought for sure it would have been posed here before, but couldn't find it in a search!

    Experts, what say you :-)?

    I think you are very close with your Helvetica suggestion. It could though be designed after most of the 'Swiss' types. The caps made smaller and the k shortened the Univers 59 Ultra Condensed, expanded a bit, comes reasonably close.

    Ahh Koeiekat,
    Thank you as always.. So there is not some font that I'm unable to find, then..

    When you say "designed after most of the 'Swiss' types", do you mean to say that it's a newer version of Helvetica?

    I thought I was using Neue, but it's been so long since I installed Helvetica, that I could be wrong or have mixed something up.

    Thank you again for your insight :-)
