Font used on 1960's PPK slide?

Got my 1967 PPK .32 back from Tornado Technologies after having a new-old-stock PP .32 barrel threaded .450 x 32 tpi and installed. I'm working on a Form 1 suppressor design for it, and would like to have the ATF mandated data panel engraving on the suppressor match the font used on the slide my PPK. Anyone have any idea what font Walther used back in the day?

"Avenir Next Condensed Italic" will be as close as it gets, as per a previous discussion on this subject here at WF*.

There used to be a Usenet group and/or a reddit for identifying typefaces if you need anything closer than that.
