The sign can’t be any older than 1992. That’s the year when Mike Allard made his digitization of Walthari named Perry Gothic. It’s a typical 1990s freebie, with minimal character set and despicable outlines. If you zoom into the photo, you can see some of its defects, e.g. the dents in the left inner curves in a and u, or the flat segment in the left outer curve of e. Dieter Steffmann’s Augusta (2000) and Typo-Graf’s Berry Rotunda (2016) both are derived from Perry Gothic. They add accented characters, but didn’t fix the poor outlines. Since Perry Gothic doesn’t have umlauts and Berry Rotunda’s dieresis are angled, my bet is that this is Augusta. Out of the box, however, its umlaut dots are bigger. The type on the sign looks like it was additionally stretched. For better digital versions of Heinz König’s typeface, see Waltari by Tom Wallace (HiH, 2008) and Gerhard Helzel’s digitization under the original name (2010).
