I have a set, don't want to part with them though.

I like them a lot better than the new age ones.

Try this site, they have what they are calling gothic style stamps.

I came across an almost complete set of letters and numbers at a garage sale once and bought them home cheaply. The letters and numbers are 1/4" high when stamped onto metal. I believe there are a number of different sizes available as well so you will need to measure the size you want. Now that you have mentioned these stamps I will have to go looking for them as I think I placed them somewhere safe,,,,very safe

Hi cobbadog
If You Find Them
Let Me Know If You Want To Sell Them Or Could I borrow them
The Size Would Be The Right One
Kind Regards

When I come across them I will let you know what is missing and then we can take it from there. These stamps are in the shed somewhere and work forbids me to play this side of Christmas. But I will keep in mind.
Cheers
