Oak-made 83-key keyboard for the IBM 5531 Industrial Computer, an industrialised version of the IBM 5160 Personal Computer XT. Despite its resemblance to the IBM PC Keyboard, it's not a Model F keyboard and can be distinguished by its flatter appearance and the lack of curvature on the separator between the F-keys and the rest of the keys. It has a black, coiled cable terminating in a 5-pin DIN plug, single-setting riser feet accessible from the sides, and 4 rubber feet to prevent sliding. This version has an IBM black square badge.
