These numbers are monoline with ball terminals, a letterform found on some manual typewiters. The closest fonts that I have found are MVB Fantabular Sans designed by Akemi Aoi, and Esfera NF designed by Nick Curtis based on Beton.

I think those are lining figures of Archer Semibold.

I agree, Akira, that those are the lining figures of Archer Semibold. As Martha Stewart, for whom the typeface was developed, would say "it's a good thing." A monoline slab serif with ball terminals from typewriter letterforms--a very efficient and effective design. I checked the numbers category at H&FJ but missed the numbers on the Archer page. My bad.
