Intertype Spike Gothic? Any Info?

(posting this here as well to see if there are any hot-metal people out there that can give me more information)

I recently picked up a small booklet of "Intertype Gothics" that shows two sizes (36 pt. and 42 pt.) of a face called "Spike Gothic."

Can anyone give me more information about it? I've never seen it before and would like to know more about it. Any digital versions? A quick Google search didn't turn up anything.

Thanks!

Not exact, but a lot of letter similarity to Linotype's LTNordica.

Was discussed at http://typophile.com/node/118180
Nothing to add except to agree with apparent consensus that it was made in the Intertype office and is not digitized.

Anyone seen a specimen of the whole font - interestng that it has not been digitized.
