There are 3 variations of the key caps for the IIc computers and you may need to pull off a keycap or two to identify the switch type. Other IIc keyboard parts can be found here and this page might be useful for further identification if needed.
The original keyboard used Apple switches (they are even branded) and the key caps are beige. The bottom of the cap has a + receptacle to fit onto the switch. Caps lock, 80/40 and keyboard switches have a rectangular post.
They then changed to using Alps switches. These key caps came in both beige and platinum (matching disk drive doors). The bottom of the cap has a rectangular post to fit into the switches.
Photos are in order top to bottom – Apple, Alps beige and Alps platinum, and platinum is on the lower right in second photo. *It can be hard to tell the beige from the platinum in the photos, but the wrong color would make one of your keycaps look “dirty”(beige) or “clean”(gray) when put with the wrong keyboard.
Select from the following:
- Beige (Apple switches) (+ on the bottom of the cap and the white switch post also looks like +)
- Beige (Alps switches) (rectangle on the bottom of the key cap). Amber color rectangular switch post. Beige disk drive door, beige volume knob.
- Platinum (gray) (Alps switches) (rectangle on the bottom of the key cap). Amber color rectangular switch post. Platinum disk drive door, platinum volume knob(nearly white).
The Apple key caps version will include the space bar clips and stabilizer bar with the space bar.
For the Alps key caps: Control, Shift, Space and Return caps will come with the stabilizer bar clips on the bottom of them. Space will also have the post. Stabilizer bars are available with the other keyboard parts here.
