You're welcome :) And I find more!!!

Actually, most part of "P22" fonts are used on the HP's props. I mean, “P22 Operina Fiore” is on Harry Potter's Triwizard Champion note and now I’m looking for the rest part of the fonts. Anyway, I've seen the font "Goshen" in some props like the Weasley price list and some Educational Decrees.

http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/chank/blinc-pak/goshen/

But it's sad when I find a commercial font and I have no money to buy it HAHAHAH :(

EmilyAustin is used on Bill and Fleur wedding invitation. And the font is FREEEE! http://www.azfonts.net/load_font/emaustin.html

Ok, that's it.

I have some contributions:

Tips:
-Not everything is a font, some things are handwritten or custom lettering.
-Sometimes fonts are altered such as squashing or stretching the font, changing the spacing between letters and even altering individual letters.
-Harry Potter props use a mix of free and Commercial/Pay fonts. If you’re not willing to pay for a font, you may be able to find a similar font for free.
-What The Font (http://www.myfonts.com/WhatTheFont/) and Identifont (http://www.identifont.com/) can be useful for identifying fonts.
-Commercial font sites like MyFonts (https://www.myfonts.com/) and Fonts.com (http://www.fonts.com/) let you try fonts on their site by typing whatever text you like. It’s possible to copy this text as an image… Can be useful if you just need a single line in a commercial font…

Some Fonts I know of:
