What is the font on this vintage stamp?

They used to include design details, even the font selection, in the original announcements for the issuance of US Postage stamps. The US Postal Service has a record of those (certainly the National Archives would have them).

Of course, they have never used fonts - metal, digital, or otherwise, although they may have used patterns. Each stamp die, including the lettering, was hand-engraved.
