It's not Pleca, Plite, Elica or Pelite

At a first rough estimate, I thought it was typing at 11 characters to the inch, but it's not. It's Elite (10-point). Anyone seen or heard of a 14 characters to the inch manual portable typewriter?

I think the smallest type I've seen in my machines is 12 cpi, but will check it out (it's a great excuse to take them off their cases again!)

I've never seen a Torpedo with a typeface smaller than elite… but Olympia and Erika both had a micro typeface that's 14cpi, so it might have been an option on a Torpedo.

I haven't seen a portable with smaller type, but I have an Olympia SG3 with 17 cpi.
