    The Bundesjugendspiele (“Federal Youth Games”) are an annual sports event that takes place at German schools and German international schools. They are obligatory for all students. […] The performances achieved are rated with points. If the participant achieves a specific minimum score, they are given a simple certificate. Above a certain higher score they receive an ‘honorary certificate’, which bear the (printed) signature of the Federal President. — Wikipedia

    The honorary certificate (Ehrenurkunde) as used in the 1960s features a special combination of typefaces: While the text is set in Diotima-Kursiv by Gudrun Zapf-von Hesse, the heading is in Saphir by her husband Hermann.
