Thank you.

Now that is almost certainly hand drawn. In those days it made much more sense to have a lettering artist custom design the nameplate of your magazine, as well as type for advertisements and such. Furthermore there was no way on earth they could have done the overlapping T and C and the negative leading with type.

Okay, but how'bout a font or two close to that style.

(toke...toke...searching myfonts.com...mmmm...)

Conserif is sorta-kinda close.

1971 more fonts like that

Another list of slabbies

And the larger point size in metal would have much heavier strokes. The T you'd have to chop and channel with a welder to get the length.
