Hello everyone, I want to show you my macro-daily keyboard.

It's an IBM M50, for the 4700 terminal. Here some photos, hope you'll enjoy it!

The original keycaps, the keycap remover and the stickers for the keys:

Question: How rare this keyboard is? In my country I have a guy that has 7 of these on sale but nobody knows about it. I'm from Argentina but he doesn't ship internationally.

Relatively rare, but not that much. Nice little units, as some previous posts by some bloke in this forum show. :mrgreen:

I've been aware of the guy in Argentina selling those, and every time an acquaintance of mine flies there, I try to convince him or her to get me a couple. :D

Did the pack come with WASD caps besides the transparent ones?!

Nice.

Take a peak inside , you may see a happy surprise.

Some M50s ( if not all ) have a half F half M design . An F style top and bottom plate with M internals. Or what i like to call a "Proto M"
