It's definitely a Model C. See photos here:


I'd definitely take it if it was a Model B as that was what was used on
the PDP-1 for a console typewriter (modified of course). The 'C' is a
different styling than the B.

Worth keeping? To someone I'm sure. Was it ever used as the console for
any computers?
