Note: The lettering on the Spectrum Plus keys does yellow over time. To help match your keyboard, I have separated the spare keys I have for sale into various colour grades (see this diagram for a guide). These particular keys I'd rate as as colour grade 1-1.5 in my comparison chart (as white as it gets for 2nd hand keys really)
