Could anyone suggest a few fonts that have 'old style' numbers, similar to the ones on this coin?
I didn't put this in Font Identification
, because these numbers are engraved. The metrics of the letters are important; I'm interested in having the 4 be small, and long descenders for the 7 and 9.
Garamond has some of those characteristics.... although the 4 isn't that small... so maybe not too helpful...
Late, I know, but you may like the Grantham Light
. However, the 3 and the 5 should be on the baseline. See Alphabets Old And New For The Use Of Craftsmen by Lewis Foreman Day (1910), illustration #128.
