Interesting find for the keyboard collector.. It looks, feels and sounds just like an IBM model M ps/2 keyboard. Even has the same interchangeable key caps and key stems, stabilizer bars on number pad, similar weight. Differences include the RJ-11 connector to ps/2 cable, keyboard extension feet design, slanted font used on keys, LED and internal keyboard controller, space bar design.
cableremovable ps/2 to RJ-11 type
key caps removable (two piece, key stem + key cap)
key switches clicky = buckling spring
Designed when “real” typing on a quality keyboard was a required skill to use a $5000 IBM personal computer.
(pre-dates the then new mouse-click and graphical user interface operating system later to be known as Microsoft Windows 3.1 and 95)
conditionUpper keyboard case and individual keys
have been removed and fully cleaned by hand.
commentsThis keyboard is tested to work 100%
