No numbers in the VMS

I seem to recall someone stating that there were no numbers
found in the VMS, I'm not too sure about letter frequencies, so I
was wondering how this conclusion was reached.
The reason I was wondering was how the search was done.
Was whoever figured this out doing it on a Base 10 numbering
system?  I recall that the greeks or romans used Base 12
and the Babylonians and Egyptians used like Base 60.
If the VMS was copied from an older source as it's believed,
wouldn't the numbering maybe be in another base.
