    How greedy can one be!
    Have they ever thought about it that they practically gave the type away by reproducing it at that size? One good scan and it is almost there. OK a few characters are missing but the type design in itself is so straight forward in using the same shapes all over again that the rest can be solved with a reasonable gamble.
    It seems there are still people out there that have never driven a paved road.

    Get Font creator
    Scan your text at high resolution (min 600 dpt) B/W
    Save every single character as a single BMP
    Import in Font Creator.
    Do think about the kearning so that the characters match correctly. See your example
    Save as a font with a clone name.
    Carcefully look at the copyright lines, otherwise it's not yours.
    Bingo. Done.

    Piece of cake. Great thing: you can eat it AND have your font
    You have 30 days or you will have to pay.
    Which after this exercise you will do happily do anyway because it is a good program.

    Missing any characters? Tell me.

    Sure. But those are probably all heavily compressed jpgs. That's not crisp enough. and highres scans? I doubt it. Most scans I see on the web are plain garbage. Take my advice: make your own scans. Good ones.
