commentsKeyboard originally came with early IBM industrial computer and color is typically described as gray, but we think that militay olive drab is a more accurate description of the color.
commentsKeyboard pre-selected as good candidate and passed initial testing to confirm mechanical condition.  Upper keyboard case disassembled and individual 101 keys have been removed and fully cleaned by hand.  Inspection of interior plate.  Any missing rivets drilled out and replaced with M2 precision screws to restore internal integrity.  Interior plate vacuumed to remove foreign debris.  Keyboard re-assembled and re-tested post-cleaning. Individual photography of rear label.
commentsThis keyboard is tested to work 100%.
