It's not the same but Futura Display, was my first thought.

I'm sure others will come up with better ideas.

Probably hand drawn. Jim Parkinson's FF Moderne Gothics are also similar.

Definitely hand drawn -- the legs of the two N's are different widths. Stephen's suggestion is good, and Nick Curtis has many designs from this era, in both his freeware and buyware fonts.
