Is it just me or is the logo way off vertical center?

Not much wiggle room for the gold label, maybe a trick of the lighting? What bothers me more is the "ATT 6300" hand written on the back. Those computers were built by Olivetti and used a special keyboard with a 9 pin D-sub. The Gen 2&3 Northgates had dipswitch support for the 6300; more than just a pin adapter for the cable.

edit: a bit of reading suggests that the ATT 6300 keyboard ran on 12 volts, so perhaps this was internally modified (added 5 volt reg) to work on that machine? (...or plugged into 12 volts and burnt up inside?) It would also need a pin adapter, and if I remember correctly the 6300 was only partially BIOS-compatible with the XT. "For parts" is probably for a good reason.

Possibly blue Alps, but shipping is too expensive for me.

I've never in my life seen an HHKB that yellowed, and I own a very yellowed one!

It must have sat on a sunny windowpane the entire time.

No clue about the keyboard, but that Hirschmann MES 160 is an unusual choice.

That plug looks like something you'd attach to a flail.

Well, you must occasionally view the garden at certain times of the day when you type :D .

I don't blame anyone for leaving their keyboard in the sun it's our Star, that delivers Life on this planet.

I use a similar one of those to compliment my 60% Alps keyboard. It uses integrated Alps domes.
