Hopefully someone will have some....
The blasted one is on the left side of the keyboard.
Having a spare for the right side probably not a bad idea too...
We were missing keyboards and got this like new one gifted to us. It was heartbreaking to see it damaged in shipping.
We have a couple early 5150 umits with expansion chassis. Although only one of the monster interconnect cables between the pc and expansion chassis.
Looking for posters lapel pins and other display art to fill in open areas...
Any other ideas wekcome!

Ed, that was excellent! We appreciate the extra effort.
Alas, you are 15 years too late for my extra 5150 keyboard parts. They
didn't make it through the third move (Ben Franklin commented how that was
as disruptive as a fire)
