They all look fairly similar. What I meant is that the ones with
PS/2-style plugs normally use PS/2 protocol, and the ones with an RJ11 use
a different, proprietary protocol. My PS/2 ones are at work so I can't
easily check. The only ones I have here are RJ11 LK401s, from VT420s.

My LK401s, one UK layout, one German, both say Made in Mexico but they're
still DEC.
