Yes, this is true. For some reason that only HP knows they changed their labeling from above the keys to below for a few calculators only (I am only aware of the HP-97/91 apart from the HP-67). Personally I don't mind too much because in the days when I was really using them I just knew which keys I needed to press and did not have to look at the keyboard very often.

I assume they did that because the 67 has labels a - e, and they couldn't put those letters above the A - E keys because of the card slot. They didn't have that problem with the 65 because it doesn't have labels a - e.


Great reason, Thomas. Well done for that. I’ve been wondering why for some time.

Also for reasons unknown, the WP34S also has this anomaly (without card reader to explain it). Since you have to have labels to stick on the donor HP30B, making a different label set with the texts above the buttons was an easy fix. Even the emulator was fixed with a template.
