24 point unknown with a pen-drawn quality

Hello everyone

This font eludes me, I hope someone can name this face and/or foundry. I have been through McGrews but this face may have been shown earlier or might be an import.

The cap Os (mixed in with zeros) are indicated by a tiny C marked on the counter. There are no other markings I can make out and no pin marks. The O type appears to be slightly open at the top, where the zero is more a perfect oval with no breaks.

It looks for all the world like someone’s idea of a drafting font.

Thank you
