    Top: Probably Helvetica Neue Black or Heavy (at a guess)
    Bottom: Looks very much like Amerigo Bold

    Bottom could also be Pegasus albeit with a modified R

    One that I've been looking for, for a bit.

    The 'HYSTER' one. It's the Y that is the defining character.

    FYI, I use this site to find odd fonts and it works really well.
    http://www.myfonts.com/WhatTheFont/

    You upload or link to a sample image, select characters and it will bring-up exact or close matches.

    Cheers!
    TTE :)

    One of the Antique Olive family. I've lost track of all the variants, there are so many, but you could probably start with Antique Olive Nord Italic and tweak the horizontal scale down a touch and the tracking up, and you'd end up with something as close to that sample as makes no odds.

    Cheers!

    You can use this site for automatic font recognition, it's fairly accurate as I have used it a couple of times.

    [SIZE=-1]www.myfonts.com/WhatTheFont

    just upload an image of the font and voilà~




    by the way, does anyone know where I can get this: It's called Welcome, and it was used in the Germany 2006 FIFA world cup.
    The difficult part is that it's not even for sale, and only the FIFA organisers and related (ie. Yahoo) have it. Do you, or anyone you know has it... especially since the FIFA is finished over a year...

    There's a few close matches that might work. Good luck!

    Correction: it's Antique Olive Compressed Italic with the tracking up a touch.

    There are a number of shareware/freeware fonts that look enough like Antique Olive to get away with if you don't want to shell out for the proper font, but their names elude me at present ... sorry!

    Cheers

    If that's not Helvetica, it's as close as makes no odds.

    Cheers!
