commentsIncludes IBM original exterior cardboard box (used condition with writing and other shelf wear marks) with IBM informational graphics.  Interesting, but imperfect, find for the IBM mechanical keyboard collector.  External keyboard box and IBM model M keyboard are a match, but the internal keyboard brown cardboard box is not the original match for this keyboard.  Unit was recovered 24 years later with the IBM exterior box, IBM interior box, IBM keyboard.  No 5-pin DIN adapter included.  No IBM User’s Guide or warranty card included.  Due to condition, not considered as (new in original box: never been used)
