Helvetica for the main logo "DATA GENERAL", "NOVA 3" and the button
digits 0-15.

The rest of the captions aren't so easily identifiable ("CARRY", "PR
LOAD", "MEM PAR" etc). They're something else, but quite close to
Univers or Univers Extended.

The yellow engraved stuff on the right metal is whatever font their
engraving machine used, it's not a typesetting font.
