About this keyboard type

The IBM Model 300 is an intermediate-sized alphanumeric keyboard for the IBM 4700 Finance Communication System's 4704 terminal, introduced in December 1982. The Model 300 is essentially the same as the Model 200 but comes with an additional 15-key transparent-capped keypad on the right-hand side of the keyboard for user-assigned functions. Since 2016, Model F Labs has developed and marketed a recreation of the Model 300 designated as "F77".
