Variant of a Model F Functional Key Keyboard

IBM 4980 Display Station Keyboard is a variant of the 122-key IBM Functional Key Keyboard designed specifically for use with and only natively compatible with a IBM 4980 host. Like a standard "F122", it comes with both an XT-style 10-key function bank to the left of the alphanumeric block and a 24-key "PFxx" function key block above the alphanumeric block. These too feature two-setting feet, and are also commonly referred to as either "F122" or "F127".
