Electric typewriter font

Hi, does anyone know what this typeface is called (and if it's available in digital form)?
I found it on an old letter and I thought it's one of the most beautiful monospaced fonts I ever saw …

Thanks!
Iz

Leave it to Germans to make a typewriter font look cool.

Actually the majority of, if not all designers at lineto are of Swiss origin.

I meant the original. Is it Swiss?

Right, Lineto's Superstudio is very close. It says it's based on a Selectric font called 12 Dual Gothic, so I guess that was it … No idea who designed that font in the first place though …

Thanks a lot for your help!

There's a rough free-for-personal-use version digitized by Volker Busse: F25 DaisyWheel.
