Hello Helmut, are you looking for a digital option that comes close, or for an ID of the historical type? I can’t help with the latter. Gerhard Helzel has digitizations of several 19th-century Gotisch designs, but none of them has a non-descending f.

Thx for the answer. I just want to know (and it made me crazy) where the typeface is coming from. In the 18th century Gothic was not usual. Later ~1850 it became a hype and all of the typecutters had one or more.

One very similar is Fette Gotisch of Dieter Steffmann, but has f with fine descender:

One with a simlar f is ManuskriptGotisch of D. Steffmann, but more different:

Helzel has mostly the same. They are all recut from late 19th century specimens.
