Looks like Augustea (by Butti & Novarese for Nebiolo, 1955), with a little redrawing of the N.

And here's a belated scan

I am looking for the serif face. It does look custom, but wondering which face it's based on or a face that closely resembles it. Thx in advance. Here's a big larger logo.

It could be based on Book Antiqua. See attached.

I did a full run on the 'Serif' section of the FontBook,
but that revealed nothing.

I'm not so sure about the Book-Antiqua/Palatino lead.
Your sample is more fluid, less squarish than Zapf's type.

Well, the all-caps sans is Avenir.
But I think you're probably looking for the
serif one, which I can't tell what it is.
That Y makes me tempted to say it's a custom
alphabet for this logo.
If you could get us a bigger sample, it would
be very helpful. ;-)
