Similar to wood typefaces labeled “Antique Condensed”, from which there are several digital revivals — Antique XX Extra Condensed from Wooden Type Fonts and Bamberg from Solotype come closest to this sample.

I get the feeling it is probably a film version of one of these wood faces which was stretched and modified (see unusual placement of ‘A’ bar) using phototypesetting technology.
