IBM-made 83-key integrated keyboard assembly for the IBM System/23 Datamaster (IBM 5322 "desk-top" variant). This keyboard assembly is presently the earliest confirmed Model F keyboard design and buckling spring keyboard at large. The layout is derived from that of the IBM 5251/5252 Typewriter Keyboard but makes minor tweaks to establish the true XT-style physical layout.
