Acer-branded example with blue Alps switches. If this keyboard bears any dating evidence, it is not readable in the photos.

Canon A220-UKB84

Canon model A220-UKB84 with white Alps, dated to 1990 from the one visible IC date code. This variant appears to be intended for the little-known Canon A-200 III IBM-compatible desktop computer from the 1980s[1] and potentially earlier revisions of this machine. The keycaps appear to be dye-sublimated.

Partial conversion between UK and US layout can be achieved using two spare keycaps supplied in the box.[2]
