What font is this?
« on: November 14, 2012, 09:31:23 AM »
Can anyone identify this font, or something similar? I uploaded it to WhatTheFont and it couldn't come up with anything close.

It's only for a barcode, but the one I scanned this from is really old and I need to redo it. It's a job for the government so I need to match as close as humanly possible.

Looked on MyFonts.com and came up with these:

Ticketing
Mono Neox
PF DIN Mono Medium
Monofaked
Albedo BV
CA Monodon Bold
Some Assembly

None of these fonts is bang on but one or two are pretty close.

How did you come up with those? I submitted my scan and it gave me nothing that looked close.

I need help with this font. The way the numbers are baseline shifted is throwing me off.
Thanks in advance.

Could be a version of Times (Roman Small Caps and Old Style Figures).

I searched for tags matching OCR, Receipt, Monospaced in various combinations

For DCurry --

This font preview just arrived in my emailbox today, thought it might be a close match to what you were looking for, since it's designed to emulate a cash register receipt type of look:

I wound up using Osaka-Mono. It was already on my system and we didn't want to have to buy something.  Thanks for the help, everyone!

Flipping mystery, it looks like a common one, but I couldn't find nothing, and the image is too low rez to do anything with. I can't even find a web site bout that name.

If you can separate out the characters a bit and try WTF again, it get better results. Good luck.

WTF read the characters okay but came up with nothing close. I found a pay font online called Manuel Pro that was similar but not worth the effort. I used Eras and created outlines and kinda retraced. Crap in, crap out!

It looks like Handel Gothic (or some variation/knockoff of it) to me...
