The Omnikey Ultra had some extra keycaps that were use to represent the new
keyboard mapping used on the Amiga. I have never seen or know anybody who
has seen the Amiga keys that were shown in the manual (special purchase)
that would complete the conversion.

BTW Jim, if you run the site I have to say thanks for
putting that together, the Tandy 1000 Shrine that links off that page is the
reason I own an expanded Tandy 1000HX now.
