IBM Model F 122-key model 6110346 with original APL key caps. Sorry, all I've got is the eBay listing photo. I had the correct PF1 at home so that has already been replaced.

Mmmm… APL. So pointless, but so pretty!

I have to give a nod to HaaTa's HP 15254A Keypad since nobody else has :P The sheer ludicrousness of putting a giant solenoid that takes up like half of the volume
only for the purpose of electrically physically locking the keys! Of course the switches are really neat too, and it's mindbending on how they had to squish them in so that the layout would physically work given their size. This switch positioning can also can be seen in all of its diagonal WTF glory in the Los Alamos keyboard here :shock: :

Feeling excited looking at this even after 6 years.

I completely missed these. This one and the Los Alamos board are true treasures from the past. Amazing!

Amazing boards. I especially like Seebart's nominations. I can't believe I've never seen this thread. :shock:
