Cherry Solid-State Capacitive large (wide/large keys)
026-0970 ART REV C, 001-1251 deskthority.net Additional numbers exist on the label inside, but I'm not familiar with the formats of the numbers, and they are all unlabelled. The purpose of the keyboard is a mystery. B4 is Cherry's solid state capacitive series, and catalogue products do have part numbers beginning B4VE.

Cherry MX Black 51251P
51714 (int.)
klikkyklik.wordpress.com Oh boy, this is complicated. It was made for Grass Valley Group by TG3, and made for TG3 by Cherry. The controller appears to be dated 1984 or 1987 and another chip is copyright 1988, but the Motorola SN74LS373N is dated 9125, so I am taking this IC date as it ties in with the reported date of manufacture.

There are also two internal part numbers: KBA-G7027D (presumably Cherry) and EA-2191-03 (TG3), and two serial numbers: 51714 (inside) and the strangely very similar 51251P (outside).

G 000705 L23 mousefan.telcontar.net Actual part number is 185152-296. Switches are not clear: space bar is grey, and so tactile grey is assumed. The enter key is seemingly also reported to be grey (going by machine translation of the reference page), but no picture of this is provided.
