Object is a plugboard for an IBM machine such as a 519. The cover is not installed, so the board is exposed. There is a paper with labeling that overlays the board. There are grey and whitish-Yellow cloth covered wires placed in the board. The plastic covers at the top of the plugs are grey. The plugs and wires cover three quarters of the board. There is a metal label at the front of the board that reads, "Property of International Business Machines Corp. 901 225284 590 Madison Ave. New York 22, N.Y." There are remnants of a white sticker at the base of the frame.
