Found one that's almost identical, so will try it and then tweak the bits that aren't quite right. :)

Then it's on to the numbers font at the bottom. :geek:

Can't find a font that has enough of a slant for the numbers to match the pattern around them, so here's the badge as it is now:

If anyone does find the correct font for the numbers at the bottom, that'd be great. :geek:

Well, those numbers ARE a lot closer than what had been there.
I looked through all the fonts I have here and none of them looked right. Close-ish, but not right.

Thanks for all your work PVB, I think it might be time to print these. :)

I still had to remove little bits off some of the numbers, but I hope to locate the right font one day, it's just not easy to search for the right one with so little to go on. :)

Maybe the numbers font is an upright font that got:

1) false italicized
2) height/width proportions altered

If I were to try to find this font--and gorrammit, the itch is really strong to start hunting for it!--I would concentrate on finding a font that matches

1) the flat-topped 3
2) the 2 with the rounded top corners and the clipped knee
3) the squared stroke ends
4) sharp internal corners
5) (hard to tell on my laptop) also, the ghost of a serif on the tail ends of the 5 and the 3

AND THEN I would bring it up in Photoshop or Illustrator and see if I can italicize it. If that fits, then I'd start tweaking the height/width and kerning as needed.

Also, it may be possible to rasterize the text layer in Photoshop, then Free Transform it (using Skew) to increase the angle of the italicization.
