19th-century condensed typeface used on 1958/9 Avalon Hill Gettysburg game counters

Trying to ID the very condensed serif face with slab ends (not slab serifs - I'm not sure 'slab' is the correct term). The sample in the image is ALL the letters and numbers used in this face on the counters for this game: C, I, 1, 2, 3, 4. The 2 looks very distinctive, though. I tried Identifont, but it doesn't suggest anything with those slab ends to the 3 and top of the 2 - only Bodoni and relatives with ball-ends.

Not much to go on, but any help is appreciated!

Looks like someone's version of Spire.
