Or it could just have had the keyboard replaced some time ago... Or C= had some spare red led KB's when they moved to new revision and decided to sell "mixed" units..

WhichAmiga can also be unable to recognize Agnus rev properly.

Is your keyboard equipped with C= key in place on Left Amiga key?
Is your Commodore logo an embossed mold directly in case, or is it a small C= sticker or maybe a bigger Commodore A500 one?

For what I observed and also confirmed reading on Web:
Early A500 (rev. 3 and 4, and some very first 5) have had "embossed mold" logo and Red Led KB with C= key
Later rev. 5 had Red Leds and small C= sticker
Latest rev. 5 was undistinguishable externally from rev. 6 - green leds and small C= sticker
Rev. 6 AFAIK was only green leds and small sticker
Rev. 8 was green leds and bigger sticker (same as A500+)

Could be.

But the keys seem rounded as if it were a Mistumi (=green led) keyboard. But I may be mistaken. Older KBs had more square shaped keys. Seems to be a regular rev 6 board.

Not true. I have a rev5 with green power led and wide badge case. And the seal was in place when I bought it.

C= used the parts they have at hand.

Indeed, it is not impossible for it to be a Rev6 with a red power LED.
