About this keyboard type

The 122-key "battleship"-sized IBM Function Key Keyboard is an expanded and far more common version of the tenkeyless "unsaver" keyboards, adding an 18-key numeric keypad to the right side of the design. These keyboards were available for the IBM 3179 Color Display Station, IBM 3180 Display Station, and IBM 3270 PC. It comes with both an XT-style 10-key function bank to the left of the alphanumeric block and a 24-key "Cmdxx" or "PFxx" function key block above the alphanumeric block. These too feature two-setting feet like the unsaver and are commonly referred to as the "F122".
