Rare Apple Lisa Keyboard,with intact menu cardsUnknown whether it works or not
I have not ever used this keyboard and do not know whether it works. I can't really test it because of its nonstandard connector. I have not ever opened up its case and do not know what condition its interior is in.
I acquired this Lisa keyboard circa 1989 and have kept it in my nonsmoking homes and in climate-controlled storage units ever since. Its serial number is 1005643.
I have not done anything to clean it.
The keys all seem to have good travel and don't stick. They have a pleasant light touch. The caps lock stays down and stays up.
For keyboard aficionados, this is a rare chance to own a classic original keyboard from the dawn of the graphical interface era. They have a rarely-seen feature: instructional cards built into the underside of the keyboard itself.
The menu cards under the keyboard are still attached and still slide in and out cleanly. They give information for the Lisa's use: Keyboard, Icons, Windows, Text, and Notes on the computer. Nothing has been written on any card, front or back. The card pull tabs are intact. The tabs are yellowed with age, but the cards themselves look almost new.
The menu cards are a throwback to the beginning of the GUI era, at a time when nobody knew how to double-click on a folder icon to open it!
The cord still retains most of its original shape (it's not kinked) and its coil hasn't been stretched hardly at all.
All four feet are still attached — I think they're hard rubber.
As the buyer, you will pay the actual shipping amount for your chosen shipping method. Please check the cost of shipping before offerding. Or, if you can meet me near the north suburbs of Chicago, I can hand it over in person. I am willing to drive up to 30 minutes from Evanston, Illinois to meet you.
