    The font used in the attached example looks an awful lot like a compressed version of Franklin Gothic. But there's parts of it that just don't fit.

    The top stem on the lower case "g" is different from the Adobe, Monotype and Bitstream versions of Franklin Gothic I have. The top part of the vertical stem on the lowercase "t" it tapered instead of perfectly parallel. There's other little subtle differences. If this is a cut of Franklin Gothic, what foundry produces it? I'm a bit baffled by this one.

    According to my FontExpert database the closest match if the Bitstream version of Franklin Gothic Xtra Condensed.
