PRR GP-9 early lettering and number size

Hello All, I've seen somewhere awhile ago a chart with the lettering and number font and size for PRR locomotives.  I'm refurbishing a gauge one GP-9 into a PRR and need this info to have custom decals made.  In this version the cab numbers are smaller then the PENNSYLVANIA on the sides. There are no keystones at all.  Anyone have an idea where to find such info ?

Thank you,

The PRR started to renumber in the mid 60s in anticipation of the PC merger, which is when the large sans sarif numbers came from. I'm away from the library at the moment, but I would spit ball 1963-1964.

Thank you for the info. I should have made myself more clear. I failed to say I'm refurbishing as when the GP-9s first arrived on the PRR. The Pennsy lettering looks to be about 9" tall and the cab numbers are even smaller.   Sorry , thank you.
