Wonderful blog and very excellent question! I am a traditional soul and prefer the more classic typefaces: Seidl & Naumanns elite with sans serif numerals is #1 for me, followed closely by Royals Herald elite. Kind regards,
Thanks for your reply, but may I know what is Royal Herald Elite? is there a link?
I searched yesterday for examples in the TWDB and found a couple, but none with sans serif numerals. I have added a typeface specimen to my gallery if you'd like to see! Kind regards, http://typewriterdatabase.com/1939-royal-quiet-de-luxe.4758.typewriter
I like the Olivetti Graphika's Cassandre typeface - it's weird and beautiful. A sample can be found here:http://writingball.blogspot.com/2010/12/olivetti-graphika.html
