Typefounders of Phoenix invoice (1962)

You can see the Fargo typeface in use in an APHA invitation typeset and printed by Matt in 2019. It is actually printed from the very type for which the invoice was issued.
First I had heard of Mid-Century, Matt, Thanks! I wonder if the name refers more directly to Twentieth Century than Futura.
And now I see that’s what you meant, sorry.
There is some doubt about the dates of IBM proportional fonts from what I have been told, but for now that’s my story and I’m sticking to it! This invoice was definitely typewritten in a Futura-ish typeface, in 1962 no less.
