Bookman looking font

Sorry for the poor quality image, it's a rubbing of a corroded brass plaque. Any idea what this font is? I thought it might be Bookman or Dutch 766, but it isn't :(

Century Old Style looks like a good approximation for "Fred Jordan" text (probably a bit emboldened to better suit the engraving process).

Some similar fonts (but not an exact match) for the date digits could be Aldine 721 BT or Plantin Semibold
