Is that an LA34 or an LA38? I get the later DECwriter models confused.
Anyhow, that's a nice find.

Does anyone have any spare keyswitches (or complete keyboard assemblies)
for the DECwriter II, III, or older DEC keyboards? I need a replacement
keyswitch for an LK40 keyboard for a GT40 terminal, and I think a
DECwriter keyswitch may be the same (or at least interchangeable). But
I don't want to remove one from an otherwise good DECwriter.

I'm still hoping to find an APL DECwriter II. The APL character generator
and keycaps were available as a field-installed option to the LA36, or
the DECwriter II could be ordered preconfigured for APL as an LA37.
