Public service: the one on the front could be the same typeface.

I still think the back one is American Typewriter Bold.

The middle one is certainly ITC Benguiat Bold.

The front one closely resembles Clarendon with rounded serifs, maybe Clarendon standard with a stroke to increase the weight.

The rounding (and perhaps the increased weight) could be due to the process of milling the letters into the wood.

Riccardo - I agree with you and am sure it is due to the milling process.

Note the double serif on the right leg of the /R; not many fonts have that. It is definitely not American Typewriter in any weight.
