It's calligraphic blackletter--the kind of writing found in manuscripts/books before the advent of movable type--and most likely hand-drawn.
There are dozens of digital versions out there (Old English being one, but it is more ornamented than your sample). These get you close:
Mmmm.. it's gettin' close but not really close, anyway, thankyou kthomps5
As I said, the original was hand-drawn, based on this type of lettering--not every logo is hatched directly from a font file.
Yea i know what you mean.. it was originally drawn, that's right !! Thankyou for your time and support grts
This is indeed Old English, with
1. width compressed to about 65%,
2. made thicker by a parallel line technique,
3. the letters packed together so that they overlap
4. the _s_ simplified and edited, particularly so that the lower lhs would line up with the tail on _a_.
No need to edit the _s_ from Old English.
This is the _s_ from Notre Dame with width compressed to about 65%,
