They're multiplying!

Impressive spread, JP! (Nice carpeting, too.) You obviously have some non-standard M's, but how many of the rest are '401s? Any particularly seldom-seen p/n's?

Just saw this here on eBay:





Shouldn't that actually be "Compu Dealt" ?

Most of these keyboards are the run of the mill '401s including the ones with the special key caps. I have one '131 and a couple '120s. I plan on cleaning up most of the'401s and bolt mod some and sell them off. I have so many since I was getting them for cheap locally, others I bought for the special key caps.

Unusual or uncommon part numbers include 52G9658, 1394064, Industrial 1390655, Lexmark SSK 1397961, Lexmark FSK 1398601, and a 50 key 1393915.

Not pictured in the family photo is a recent acquisition, a 1394064 with stock trading keys.

Oh man, that "More Keys" button is excellent, haha. Neat Return key as well! Very cool find.

Meanwhile, you get to have a whole roomful of M's—nothing wrong with that! You do realize that from time to time, you're required to chuckle greedily and rub your hands together... Try to avoid drooling, though, especially with that nice carpeting.

Yes, the '4064 is a fun one. I was lucky to find one a while back, but JP's has mine beat by five months (mine's Jan. 1990).

Those are, to my knowledge, the only double-underlines on any M—obviously the customer didn't want those keys overlooked. (IBM, who were into subtle design, probably considered them a bit much, LOL.) The unusual colors (including red Ctrl's!) and front legends are great, too. And yes, there's that baffling 2nd Return where R Alt would be... Very specialized!

I am glad you enjoyed my spread. Yep, gotta keep the carpet is good shape since it's basically new. The '4064 is definitely has some unique legends like the 'Escpe' key. Does your '4064 have the stock trading keys as well? I had heard of the '4064 previously but had not seen any pictures. I know a guy who knows a guy who might have more (NIB even  :eek:) but is hoarding them. I was able to buy one though as said collector was moving and had to downsize a little.

That Model M is very unique. I've never seen clacks like those either.
