HP 9835 Cherry keyboard

Cherry part B21E-A601 is a custom assembly made for Hewlett-Packard for the 9835 computers. HP’s own reference number is 3101-0436-1 REV.G. This keyboard is significant in allowing the link between Datanetics DC-60 and Cherry M1 (or M11) to be traced.

The serial number suggests that it was made in 1982, or maybe 1983 (see the master vintage Cherry keyboards list).
