The headline and the company name are set in the Extended styleof Bradley. ATF offered a special cut to their German-printing customers named Ihlenburg, which is distinguished by the inclusion of umlauts, long s (ſ), eszett (ß), descending z, as well as the (then) obligatory ligatures for ch, ck, tz. The font used in this ad, however, is probably not Ihlenburg Expanded, but one of the several German copies. These included Altgotisch breit (Gebr. Klingspor), Britannia-Gotisch fett (Bauer, Klinkhardt), Kloster-Gotisch fett (Flinsch), Mammut-Gotisch (B.Krebs Nachf.), and Original-Gotisch (Ludwig Wagner).
The copy is set in a standard Fraktur, see Normal-Fraktur, with a Halbfette Kanzlei used for emphasis. Among digital fonts, Mars-Fraktur and Kanzlei halbfett klein (both by Gerhard Helzel) are probably the closest matches.
