Edit: This might be by a Danish or Swedish type foundry. Could be called Simmelkiær Grotesk, but I can’t find a specimen online of the bold cut to confirm. The lighter weights have some differing letterforms.

The top specimen reminds me of Kristall-Grotesk, but I can't find a version with that alternate G.

I believe the bottom sample is another typeface entirely. Perhaps Granby?

I’ve uploaded a third sample that shows that it’s the same typeface.
