    What fonts did rootes use for:

    The badges in the sheilds ie: "rooes 1725", "series IV" etc...
    the scripts for "alpine" and Tiger"
    and the "sunbeam" script

    I created duplicate of the badge graphic on my Series V a while back in Photoshop, but the file is too big to post here. The font is Arial, but it's stretched a bit.

    If anyone would like the original file I created, send me your email address.....

    Rich, Steve,

    thanks for your replys. Its interesting to see that it does not seem to be a comon font, i am wondering if maybe a graphic designer at rootes made it for the badges?

    Looking at a few of the badges, it seems that the ROOTES 1725 badge may use a different font in the lettering to the "sunbeam V8", "powered by ford 260" and "alpine 260" badges on the tigers. I wonder who we could ask to identify the font? Also some of the rrepros i have seen do not look correct.
