I am searching for the font in the below all-caps "Schiffer-Gilde e.V" logo I need to modify for our association.

Schiffer-Gilde e.V logo

The closest that the automatic free identification services (https://www.whatfontis.com/, https://www.fontsquirrel.com, https://www.myfonts.com/) came to were Riccione TS Bold and ITC Serif Pro Ultra, but those are clearly not enough on the drastic serif style.

I am searching for a paid or free font.

It looks like it's a custom alteration of an existing font, though I didn't pore through alternate glyphs the closest match I found was pretty darn close out-of-the-box - look especially at the formation of the R, C, L & V. I think if you start with that and then add custom work for the extensions on the D, G & V, you'll be there.

Hope this helps.

    You are right, this font is pretty darn close. Thanks for your opinion on the the custom alteration part.
