I think you are thinking of the last CoCo1 version, which came with 64k
and in a full sized white case. It did have the same keyboard as early CoCo2s.
They are a little uncommon. I have one of these, and a photo on my site sitting
beside the more recognized silver CoCo1.

Early TRS-80 CoCo2s had the same (or at least very similar) keyboard, which
later changed to more sculpted full sized keys, which continued into the CoCo3.
