I think they use “strike-on typewriter” and Courier is “a monospaced slab serif typeface designed to resemble the output from a strike-on typewriter”.

(I used “Courier New” here)

Just guessing.

@Plumber is right. Courier and Courier New are the standard “typewriter” fonts in the US. The letter you’re referencing would have been typed on an actual typewriter. Letters nowadays would be done via computer.

The font on this more recent letter is Times New Roman.


Thanks for your answers.
