I'm looking to identify the font used for the numbers in this image. The image comes from Star Trek (the original series) so presumably it's an older font available in the 1960s or was manually produced for the show. And I did try online tools (include WhatTheFont and FontSquirrel) but, because there's just a few digits, I didn't have success.

enter image description here

Might anyone know the font used, or know one that's similar?

Cosign Franklin Gothic Extra Condensed, although this looks slightly lighter (it could be a slight redraw by the button manufacturer). The text is Univers, incidentally, if you didn't know.
