How can I copy a font from an image

Hi, I'm trying to recreate a client logo in illustrator from a provided low res .jpg. I've recreated the design elements using the curvature tool but the font is a problem.

 

The client doesn't know what font was used originally and I can't find a match anywhere. I can't really use the curvature tool because the font is heavily pixelated when zoomed in. 

 

I've also tried magic wand and the creation of a work path in photoshop but as I can only set the tolerance to 0.5px it brings in a load of points I don't want. As a result, the import looks crazy when I paste it into my illustrator project?

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated?

 

TIA

There are places (including here) where you can post your image and see if anyone recognizes the font.

Thanks so much, SJRiegel. I think Neue Hammer Unziale 2 is the guy I'm looking for! Much appreciated. N
