Typeface identifications

Dear All, I have acquired some types a while ago which I don’t know what they are, could you guys help me with the identifications? Thanks a lot!!

1) is D the bold version of C?
2) what is the typeface of C and D?
3) are B1 and B2 the same typeface?
4) Are B1 and B2 Times?

Hallo Bleischatz, it would be easier to identify the face once you’ve got it printed, but to me it looks like a Garamond, with B1 and B2 the roman and the other two the bold version. Probably the Stempel Garamond. Are you by any chance based in Germany? Pull a proof, scan it and send it again. And, next time, please don’t turn your photographs around…

Thanks! Will try once I got the press set up. Ahh the type cases are all put upside down so I rotated the pictures ;-P I’m based in Switzerland.

yep, that’s normal, you always look at type (and set it) the other way round, with the nick facing away from you…
