Commodore 64
Branding Commodore
Manufacturer Mitsumi (keyboard)
Keyswitches Mitsumi hybrid switch
Keycaps Spherical double-shot
Interface Integrated

The Commodore 64 used a linear Mitsumi hybrid switch keyboard, with a PCB. Into the PCB is fitted a discrete latching action switch for shift lock; this switch is exceptionally smooth for a latching switch. The sliders use a cruciform mount instead of the more common square Mitsumi mount.

The keycaps are spherical double-shot; the front legends are likely to be pad printed.

Commodore 64C

The 64C revision has been seen with what appears to be a Mitsumi standard mechanical latching switch for shift lock.[1] This offers a suggestion as to the age of this switch.
