1930s Typeface for a Wanted Bulletin.

I am looking for at least the headline font, but anything on top of that would be helpful. I am working on a project that I'd like to use this for. Thank you for your help!

This would have been the Agency Gothic designed by Morris Fuller Benton for ATF in 1932. digitized by Jason Castle http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/castletype/agency-gothic-ct/

For the headline: Agency FB by Font Bureau looks like an exact match

Agency Gothic was uppercase only. David Berlow added a lowercase for Font Bureau Agency http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/fontbureau/fb-agency/ and added additional weights and widths. Nick Curtis has combined it with the lowercase from a 19th century font by James Conner’s Sons called Square Gothic to make Warp Three NF http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/nicksfonts/warp-three-nf/
