Default Favorite typewriter font?

I'm looking for a nice simple easy to read type writer font for dates - i have 2 typewriter fonts but they're not very clear.

I'm googling but i thought i'd ask in here as well

I love Lifesavers. I also use Appareo which is a bit more eroded & grungy.

One of the Bingo challenges a few years ago had us use Hollywood Starfire. It has been my favorite typewriter font ever since!

Problem Secretary is my go-to typewriter font.

I also like Mom's Typewriter, Type Wrong, and 39 Smooth (all can be found at dafont.com)

Thank you, everyone, for your suggestions! I added a few to my stash. I love typewriter fonts. When I first started using (or maybe I should say collecting) different fonts, I was surprised at how many are available! Dafont is a great place for free fonts.

This is one that hasn't been mentioned yet: https://www.dafont.com/search.php?q=urania+czech
