I was reading American Signature Furniture's ad when I came across this neat looking 1.

Does anyone know the name of this font?

enter image description here

or this

The closest I came was Shortwave Gothic Bold.


Based off of that "r" and "1", I am fairly certain that is Knockout


It looks very like Silvertone Woodtype by David Thometz. The tail of the lower-case t as well as the cut-out of 1 are indicative. This image is from MyFonts:

Silvertone Woodtype

A drawback of this identification is that Thomertz only designed this extra-condensed version.

MyFonts identify it as derived from a gothic face by Robert Hunter Middleton's Ludlow type foundry, possibly Square Gothic or Record Gothic.

  • @user3131975 You're very kind, but the other answer appears to cover the other variants used in the ad (and I've +1d it). – Andrew Leach Sep 15 '14 at 21:03
