IBM Keyboard Identification
« on: Fri, 25 June 2021, 12:59:52 »
I have an old IBM keyboard that was found my step fathers stuff after he passed away, I was wondering if any has any information on what it is or what it's worth? It's part number is 84G6294, I can't seem to find anything online that give much information about it. Is it worth trying to sell? Seems in such good condition for an old keyboard that I can't brig myself to throw away, do you reckon it will be of value to someone out there, I will attach pictures.

Says it right on the back, M4-1.  https://www.clickykeyboards.com/product/1997-ibm-model-m4-1-keyboard-with-trackpoint-84h8470-18-jul-1997-and-external-numpad-84h8537-spare-keyboard-assembly/  (note this one has a rare external numpad, extra parts, and is in great shape, that price is very unusual)

It's not a buckling spring, it's ok for what it is.  You might be able to sell on ebay but you won't make a killing.
