Variant of a Model F Displaywriter Keyboard

The IBM Displaywriter Type B Keyboard was the low-profile and ergonomic replacement for the beam spring-based Type A keyboard for the IBM 6580 Displaywriter System word processor made available some time in 1982. Featuring the same layout as its predecessor, the Type B features an early complete ISO-like alphanumeric block that would later be used by the IBM Functional Key Keyboard series and ISO-based IBM Enhanced Keyboards.
