1 matchesAlex, done. But you will have to refresh the font data and images as I can't.
As usual it was lack of info in the naming section.
By the way, DekoBrett is a copy of David Rakowski's LowerEastSide, which he also published as North-EastSide. Other names are Boa (CompuWorks), Campfire (Atech Software) ClampettsDisplay (WSI), Homeboy Display (Southern Software), PCUpperDowntown (Atech Software), PT Masking Tape (Kinghorn Company), PT Ruffio (Ward Technologies), Treehouse (SWFTE) and Woodplank (renamed LowerEastSide).
As usual, no guarantee that the list is complete.
1 matchesI was a bit too fast here. In fact, the font you are after is the BD Engraved Regular by Streetwise Software, which is a condensed copy of the Caslon OpenFace. There is also a BD Engraved Narrow, even more condensed.
BD stands for büro destruct (Bern, Switzerland).
The Caslon OpenFace lives under many names. This is what I found when I was looking for a proper match:
Gravure by SWFTE
Cresent by Micrologic Software
Chopin, ChopinOpenFace and Chopin Regular, conversions of CHOPINOP.TF1
Charles Open, a conversion of CASOPEN.TF1
Casque OpenFace by Softkey
CasqueOpenFace which is the Sierra On-Line version of the CasqueOpenFace Regular of the WSI-Font Collection
CasperOpenFace by Corel
Casper Open by WSI
NelsieOpenFace, a conversion of nelsie.TF1
PT Epiphany by Ward Technologies
QTCaslanOpen Regular by QualiType
Pinchi, a conversion of PinchiOP.TF1
PinchiOpenFace, a conversion by A.Mendoza of the pinchi.TF1
Casket OpenFace by unknown
PT Cornerstone by Kinghorn Company
And I may have missed a lot.

Always interesting. I would have said Banana Split. Why?
Banana Split has copyright info and a font creation signature (Altsys Fontographer) and Dolphins has not.
Dolphins is a conversion by Dennis Ludlow without any copyright info. The signature is ATEC, meaning nothing else but that the font was converted with AllType (yet Dolphins claims to be licensed).
The copyright of the PT Banana Split is with the Kinghorn Company Inc. 1993, but does not seem to be licensed. Vendor info is Altsys. Which also does not tell us very much because fonts made with Altsys Fontographer (now Macromedia Fontographer) may be attributed to either Altsys or Macromedia when users do not customize the 'Vendor ID' when they create fonts using this program.
The character sets indicate that Dolphins is probably a conversion of PT's Banana Split, with only some slight alterations, most notably the * in Dolphins.
The metrics seem to confirm this, the differences likely being caused by AllType (can sometimes be a bit messy).
I would say Dolphins is the clone but may be wrong. If so let me know.
