Last question I asked was spot on. Hoping for the same. similiar to Arno or Abode Garamond but Not. Solid Serif's should be a giveaway. Are the Numbers in the same Font ?  Thanks

Looks like lettering to me.

The numerals look quite different from the serif font above, and the 5, & & 1 appear to have been set in something similar to Paul Renner’s Futura Steile, which has some modern digital incarnations:
Topic URW Bold
Tasse Bold
and even Dinky Rink NF
 

All of these have spurs on the numeral 1 but if you substitute the letter “I” in there, it matches better.
