How to identify the Barcode type ?

How to identify the Barcode type ?


Is there any way we can identify the type in which a barcode is printed, by seeing a barcode? what all I know about this type barcode is, other than the numbers 0-9 it uses the characters given below to print barcode. Could you please help me in identifying the type of barcode?


Thanking you,

RE: How to identify the Barcode type ?

It's pretty hard to say what it may be. Assuming that you have a barcode font and an application that understands it, a barcode symbol could be mapped to any character the authors desired.

The barcode itself may be recognizable because of unique start and stop codes. Does it scan OK?
