IBM logo silver logo with black text
metal steel back case (see photo #15)
cableattached, black coiled cable, XT 5-pin DIN connector
conditionKeyboard in very good condition, but I would consider it to be used equipment due to exterior condition of box and some light dust on cable and internal keyboard surfaces.  Has a dark scratch / (burn mark?) in lower left front corner of case that is not easily removable by cleaning products. (see last photo)
Keyboard tested and fully validated to working 100% using Hagstrom’s XT to ps/2 keyboard encoder and on my IBM PC XT.
key switches VERY clicky = buckling spring
conditionRequires use of additional XT to AT converter/adapter in order to work with modern PCs

commentsMetal bottom plate with 2 out of 4 original cork pads.   Keyboard cable in very good coiled condition.  Overall very good condition for a keyboard that is 37-39 years old.  Keyboard tested and fully validated to working condition using Hagstrom’s XT to ps/2 keyboard encoder and on an amber screen IBM PC XT.
