It very much resembles ‘Reporter’, designed by C. Winkow and issued in 1938 by the J. Wagner Foundry in Germany. Another face that looks like it is ‘Stop’, designed by W. Höhnisch and issued in 1939 by Ludwig & Mayer (also in Germany).

However, this is an enlarged copy in wood. If there’s a cap A, an examination might reveal a maker’s stamp, and consulting their literature could reveal just what they called it. I agree that it looks like Reporter, though.

This is a great start for finding this type, thanks to both of you.
