I look till my eyes pop out and never have any luck identifying fonts- you folks are a real help!!
This is an old Western style. Baseline Fonts has revived it as Rodeo 57. I have it by the name of Rodding in an old font collection from Tiger Direct.

Originally 'Helvin Black', William H. Page, 1870's. Also out there as Helene Hiss Black by (defunct) Soft Horizons and Helvin Black by Type Revivals.
Edit: Note that none of these is a true match. I think Rodding (thanks, Mike) would be the closest if you simply flatten off the top of the A.
Have found several lookalikes, which all need flattened A:
