No I didn't buy a keyboard this time but instead got this 1971 annual report featuring an interesting keyboard on the cover for the 3670 communications system used by stock brokers. I thought it was neat to actually see a picture of one in color.

Not in this report but neat. Keyboard model is the 3672 Executive Console.

Nifty! Keyboard looks like it'd be one hell of an artifact to possess, but godawful to actually use, as its layout is more at home on a CNC mill or lathe than on a console for general use.
