87-key EBCDIC data typewriter keyboard with internal solenoid clicker assembly and blue-coloured display case toggle switch for the 3270-family IBM 3178 Model C3 Display Station. This variant implements the layout found previously on RPQ 8K1038 IBM 327X-87 type Model B keyboards for [at least] IBM 3278 Model 2 Display Stations, which was notable for its 12-key combination adding machine style numeric keypad and 24 program function keys. It was only available in US English.
