    Hi Chaps,
    I recently re- ground the valves on my Mini, for which I borrowed a tin of cutting paste from my neighbour. On looking at the tin, I was instantly captivated by the fantastic 60's graphics of the tin.I was hoping that somebody may be able to identify the beautiful font from the images I'll attach, and if you could, I would be very grateful!
    Cheers,
    Brett!

    Not to far off, but Grotesk No.9 seems to be a serif font and the font on the tin seems to be sans serif. Thanks anyway! :)

    So it is! Sorry, I saw the little flicks on the a's and the g's and thoght it was serif.
    I've just found a font called Lane on dafont which I think could be close, what do you think?

    Any grotesque font will be fairly similar. The Lane font looks a bit ropey too me.
