First time here? Maybe read the FAQ.

Fonts used on this old wooden shipping crate.

I am wondering if you may know what fonts were used on this wooden shipping crate.  It was produced in the USA probably in the 1950s or 1960s.  This is the only example of it that I have, so unfortunately I cannot provide a better image.  I realize an exact match is probably not available, so any recommendations on similar fonts that are available today would be great. I would like to try to reproduce it as close as possible.   Thank you!
