    I’d say font, seeing as how the letters that are repeated have identical wear on them – look at the two Ms or the three As, for example. I couldn’t tell you the name of the font in question, though.

    It is a pretty generic-looking grunge font. There are thousands of them, all alike in their "uniqueness". Did you need an exact match for this, or just something with the same flavor?

    Yes, but some are more unique than others.

    Finally...

    Ok, finally i call the graphic-guy that made the banner.
    He said that the font is "DIN" font family.
    So, i searched trough myfont.com but it don't seems "DIN" font
    http://www.linotype.com/306/din1451-family.html
    Maybe a graphics effect applied to DIN font ?
    bye

    Not a simple series of filters, no. It's not that consistent. Notice how the 'B' is distorted, 'A' has an embossed or double-struck effect moving upward, while 'M' has both that upward artifact and a center touching the baseline (which wouldn't be present in 1451). and, 'C' is largely untouched. At least some hand work was done there, either to create a font or just to create enough characters for the image.
