comments Essentially the same design, construction, and quality materials as the more common IBM model M 1391401 (works just like any other keyboard). Key caps were customed for Sabre Travel Network reservations systems for American Airlines. Has additional distinguishing labels printed in green on side of key caps (FLIFO = flight info), (TKT = ticket info), (GFAX, FONE, SEG, I-SAB, CLSVC, CSS, IAS, SOM, EMEM, EOP, EOL)
comments This keyboard is tested to work 100%. The keyboard assembly has been confirmed to be in functional, operational condition.  Any missing rivet points have been drilled-out and repaired with M2 screws to ensure intact base..
