>From the "264X Composite Service Manual" (HP 02640-90170), there are three 
2648A keyboard assemblies listed:

 - 02648-60001
 - 02648-60005
 - 02648-60006

01 is listed for use with "olive black terminals," 05 is listed for "cocoa 
brown terminals," and 06 is listed the same as 05, but with "RFI opt -017."

I believe the RFI option added a short ground strap, terminating in a 
female quarter-inch spade lug, at the keyboard connector.

02640-60180 is listed as the 2640B keyboard assembly.

Indeed so.
