Thanks Etienne, I have found Helvetica Neue Bold for the Title, simple ;D

For the other, it's difficult to find font with the good "g"



@chrischris : thanks

Email sent Etienne.

High_Cobra, here's the answer about your font (coming from a real font guru, not me ;)):
"Those characters are latin characters of a Japanese font, ゴナD (Gona D) from Shaken (写研), which is a phototype setting font and has not been released as a digital font publicly."
Good luck with that  ::)

thanks  ;) but that Japanese font was way beyond my knowledge, I had to consult the gurus at font.com too to get the right answer.

I love that I can actually see the Japanese characters on my Mac (Of course I couldn't when I first saw it today on my PC)....

Amazing that they find out what it is but uhhmmmm now how to "find" it ;)

Nope...I have a crappy XP laptop...probably something about installing fonts or something I don't want to be bothered about...

I did already some vectoring on the coinmech sticker, but i dont know if i wwant to use that now, or just start again with the original scans..
