Please Help on Identify this Keycap.

Hi everyone,

I found this keycap today and I am unable to figure out what keyboard it is from. I know deskthority will be a great place to get information so I register! :D
(There is a letter N in the bottom middle, wonder that has anything to do with manufacture...).

If anyone here knows something about this keycap please tell me, Thanks a lot!

There is no latch or anything to secure the keycap on the switch to a point I don't know if it's from a keyboard at all...

You can see under Hollow square mount recognition that it is a keycap mount style common to a number of brands. However, I don't recognise those dimensions. Where did you find this keycap?

The letter "N" will indicate which mould cavity it came from.

Rafi switch? I assume not if Daniel hasn't already mentioned it.

Definitely not RAFI, but it certainly may be intended for square post mount, of which there are not many known types. See Square post mount recognition.

Its a weird story, I find this cap in my car's ashtray when going through all the coins in there, but I have no memory of putting it in there. I ask those who share the car with me but no one recognizes it...

You know, with it being in the ashtray, it may have been there for a very long time. Maybe before you bought the car. If that is the case, maybe it is off of a calculator or a luggable of some kind. Would be reasonable to have one of those in the front seat.

Maybe we need a place to store things that are not identified, that we can look back on periodically to see if anything listed in there has since been identified.
