[ENDED] Model M 1391401 with 1393464 (air reservation) keys
« on: Wed, 04 July 2018, 19:50:55 »
This isn't a particularly cheap deal, but it is unusual—and maybe someone wants these lesser-known (and quite fun, IMHO) keys enough to be interested:

It's a standard p/n 1391401, but for some reason it has the special air-reservation keys designed for p/n 1393464. It would've work the same, of course—so I'm guessing it was used in a travel agency, and maybe someone transferred the keys to it from a '3464 that went toes-up.

'3464s also occasionally appear with standard keys. Let's face it: This vintage-keeb stuff can be a thorny, disorienting jungle of a hobby. We're up to the task, though, given sufficient coffee. I'm just saying.

I really like the special keys that randomly come with Model M's. I have this one already though along with various others oddballs yet I still have plenty of gaps in the collection.

I got a nice condition one of these recently from '88 as my first non-unicomp model M (1393464). Really like it.

The listing you’re looking for is no longer available. Check out this similar item we found for you.

...with a link that points to a crappy NMB RT6856TW. As if these two are anything alike! The ignorant masses!
