    The ROMAN variation (of Goudy Old Style) has the particular characteristics you are looking for that are not present in the other Goudy old style sets. Note the upper case C

    There are subtle differences between Goudy and Goudy Old Style. In addition, for the more finicky, there are subtle differences between each foundry's version of Goudy Old Style. Should it matter to you, your sample is from Bitstream. Versions from Adobe, Agfa-Monotype, URW, ITC and others will each be different from the rest.
