Description

Keyboard prototype made in France for the Apple IIe

Rare and unusual French external keyboard prototype for the Apple IIe, executed in a style similar to the later Macintosh Plus Keyboard (M0110A) which was not introduced until 1986. The keyboard features a French AZERTY layout, inset reset button to upper right, and a built-in number pad. Inside the case, the PCB for the number pad is marked: "Bottier et Clavier pour Apple //e [Case and Keyboard for Apple IIe]." Includes a European Apple IIe personal computer, model no. A2S2064F, serial no. 178631, with its original Apple Computer power supply and European "Apple IIe P.A.L." board inside, marked "820-0073-A / F607-0664." The computer is missing its built-in keyboard, but includes the appropriate cable and a plastic cover panel for use with this external prototype. Also includes a Disk II Interface card and single external Disk II drive.
