Numericals with Varying Baselines

Hey guys! I'm currently working on some collateral material for a brand I've created. I'm looking for a serif style font that has variations in their baselines for its numericals. Fonts in the vein of Poster Bodoni or Encorpada Classic are what I've been playing with. Thanks for any suggestions!

This stamp is from 1929. Any idea of the font or similar fonts available today?

I am trying to identify this font. It is supposedly from 1917. The double-serif tail on the number 5 and the tail on the Q are fairly unique, so it should be identifiable. So far I have had no luck finding out what font this is. Any help would be appreciated.

This is from a 2008 political science book published in Germany. It is pretty decently designed, compared to most other publications in its academic field, the typographic standard of which is pretty low these days IMHO (in Germany, that is).

(sorry, no better qualitiy available)

The typeface used looks one of those Caslon revivals, c. 1900; Binny/Bruce/Monotype »Old Style«, etc.: the T, E, the g, the Q, the numerals... but which one is it? Monotype Old Style is close, but it's not quite it. I've had a look at several »proper« Caslons, but none of them had that Q. What's weird about this book, by the way, is that there's no italics it.

I've been looking to try out walbaum in an editorial project for some time but still am unsure of its suitability as body copy? I usually go for the safer options of minion pro, sabon or caslon but have been meaning to try out this beautiful typeface. For arguments sake the type size would range from 8pt to 12pt. I hope someone can give me good advice, thanks.

This scan comes from a german magazine titled "Innen Dekoration" printed in 1914. Can anyone help me identify it?

Thanks,

Hello,

This comes from an old L. Marold album. Althought there is no date on the book, I believe it must have been printed in the begining of the 20th century.

Thanks a lot,

Hello,

Can somebody help me identify this font? It comes from a german magazine called DIE KUNST printed in 1908.

This is a simple font that I'm sure some hotshot out there can ID in two seconds...I need your help desperately! Even a close second would help.
