Spence,
It's a wrong un. Lettering wrong, the bottom line is a typeface stretched on a computer. They're both modern typefaces like Arial Black stretched and dicked around with to look like the original. Bottom one is Optima Bold or similar also messed about with. A lot of original signs were hand rendered so there will be inconsistencies in the lettering. I'm a bit of an anorak on lettering - 20+ years in the print trade...!
