comments Back in 2003, Unicomp used to make all black model M keyboards with black key caps (buttons) and white lettering in a keyboard style that was similar (but not identical) in construction to the IBM model M13 (13H6705) Made by Maxi Switch.  Unfortunately, Unicomp discountinued this keyboard part number and no longer produces this keyboard style of white letters on black keycaps.   Unicomp does still sell blank black buttons with no lettering.
comments Key lettering in excellent condition and shows no wear.  This keyboard is tested to work 100%
