commentsThis 1991 keyboard is an early example of how Dell would re-brand or have other component companies construct computer parts (in this case Lexmark), and then have Dell logos applied.  This item is essentially an IBM 1391401 keyboard.
commentsHas an interesting property sticker “US Government Property, Voss Scientific Job 24, Part No. 1079.1”.  Sticker in good condition and shows a little history of the previous life of the keyboard, but can also be easily removed by end buyer.
