Variant of a Model F200 Alphameric Keyboard

The IBM Model 200 is the smallest alphanumeric keyboard for the IBM 4700 Finance Communication System's 4704 terminal, introduced in December 1982. The Model 200 was intended to be the most basic full input device for the 4704, providing only limited user-assigned functions. Nicknamed "Kishsaver" after kishy.ca who introduced them to the mechanical keyboard community, these have become very desirable due to it being an example of an early "60%-er" mechanical keyboard. Starting in 2016, Model F Labs has developed and marketed a faithful recreation of the Model 200 designated as "F62".
