Looks like Times New Roman Bold to me.

@janbb is probably right. If it’s not Times New Roman (bold, yes), it’s some very close relative.

How about Modern No. 20? It looks all old and antique, too. Especially the numbers.

I’m so sorry

It depends on what era you want it to look like it’s from.

The link you provided was like an 70’s or 80’s era. Did you want it to represent an earlier time? Victorian or early 1900’s?
