I suspect that a keycap was lost at some point and the black one replaced it (it was (and is) realtively easy to find a replacement keycap). It probably got pulled from the keyboard of a dead machine to make yours whole. There are very subtle differences in the shape/printing on the six or seven keytop variants that used the square posts--but nothing that would detract from the overall appearance.

Not a system photo, I know, but couldn't resist sharing this photo of my front door:

(Funny thing, I never made the connection until Tursi pointed it out recently while we were exchanging msgs about my shipping address.)

Here's a different kind of system setup pic.  It's a flowchart representation of my TI 99/4A setup (and the a/v signal processing paths relevant to it) from within my larger (wildly superfluous - I love old a/v processing tech) signal processing and display setup.  Signal paths do not in any way reflect physical location.  The TI 99/4A is right under my Panasonic PVM, in the middle of my desk.

$80 for a joystick??? And that's the cheapest model! At first I thought the case was metal, which would have been cool and possibly justify the price, but for a plastic case, that's far too much.

Ahhh, right handed sticks!  The way a joystick truly ought to be!  ;) (It's my OPINION and I'm sticking with it!)

I built mine myself for less than $30 and it works great with my Atari Joystick adapter.  Very easy build.  The most time was to paint my enclosure and cut the decals out.
