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.
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.
