Hey Mbiz,

There are several "what font it is" websites that you can use to help identify. I ran one real quick like and came up with this.

Looks similar to Aviano slab or Clarendon, and I don't know much about fonts but one would imagine it being 100+ years old it might be a custom font.

As a side note, I've seen one FN (the very rare straight grip version) with a different font than other FN's.
