I have an issue finding the right font for a picky customer. 

It's written in the standard for signage to use a font called "DIN Serifenlose Linear  - Antiqua Teil 2".

I dont have this font available and i cannot find it for purchase.  

Instead i used a font called DIN schrift - 1451 mittelschrift. 

 

My customer tells me this is wrong and demands a propper technical explenation for deviating from the standard. I am pretty sure this is close to being the same font. Cannot be 100% sure since i cannot find a refference to the appearance of "DIN Serifenlose Linear  - Antiqua Teil 2".

 

Any font experts out there which can help out?

Did you try to buy the font? Is the problem finding it for sale?

Hi @TKAMDAL Did you look through the history information on this page? DIN 1451 - Wikipedia. There appears to be several iterations of the font design. There are some clues on how to find one of the foundries. Let us know what you discover!

The customer would have to provide the font or a reference to where to purchase it.

Comment from the foundry delivering the font....Seems like the customer is creating the confussion.

Thanks for replies....

 

at first glance this is not a font we find in our archive - may we ask you to send us the file your customer is using so that we can examine it?
