listen to the mandarin rain
so i couldn't get it out of my head where this font originated from, so i did some intarnets searching and found out that at least what looks like a likely suspect is a linotype typeface called "mandarin." fer those of youse that don't knows, linotype was the first mainstream automated printing machine, and those little nits we call fonts were originally designed as molds into which molten lead would solidify so you could print with the resulting big honking lead block of type.
"mandarin" was designed by the "type founders of chicago." you can now buy this font from linotype online, but why pay money? there are several free fonts you can download that get pretty close:
