Need a keyboard for my 3B1

I'm looking for a replacement keyboard for my 3b1.

During one late-night session, I managed to spill some water
into my keyboard.  The system (eventually) crashed, and now some
of the keys on the keyboard do not work.  I checked these out with
the keyboard dianostics on my spare machine (which can still run floppys)

Broken keys:

F6 F7 Msg Rsume Close/Open Cancl Clear/Rfrsh Beg Home <-
_/-  {/[ "/' U I J K M </, NumLock and the right shift button

I opened the keyboard partially up, and didn't see anything obvious.

Anyway, if you think you have a way to find out if this keyboard is fixable,
or --> if you have a keyboard sitting around that you want to sell,
drop me a line.  (I have a keyboard to use for now, but I'll still
need one when my other machine gets fixed.)
I am partial to the "stiffer" keyboard, if there is a choice.
(says "Made in Japan" instead of "Made in USA" on bottom)
