No make or manufacturing date on it anywhere but it has the dumb "windows" keys so must be mid~late '90s if not newer... I don't remember when the 'ergonomic' design got popular but pretty sure full-AT connectors were well on their way out by the time win95 rolled around.
Surprisingly not-gross by used keyboard standards, aside from the thumb smudge on the space bar (which I suspect is brake dust... Maybe this was used in a garage?) Was priced $3.00 at a nearby op shop but I walked in on "half-price *everything* day" so $1.50 it was. Grabbed it for my 386.
(On that note, why are keyboards without the stupid, useless "windows" & "macro" keys completely extinct these days? Nobody used or wanted those keys, ever. I understand the old ones are probably mostly long gone, but why can't one of the retro-minded manufacturers make a new one? I don't want a cutesy penguin or something else there either, I simply don't want a key in that location! Argh!)

I find it incredibly handy for work because for each type of job I'll have 3-5 applications open and ALT+TAB between them - multiple desktops means I can set each up so when I press ALT+TAB, I'm only seeing relevant windows to the current task. Also it looks really neat when it swipes across
I've picked up a few of these little gems myself - all gratis and in working order. I still use the best spec-ed one daily, though its optical drive is a bit dodgy. I plan to upgrade one by doing the Mac Mini conversion, retaining the monitor and extending all connectors to out to the side.
