Ah, like a 3-post co-ax color display I get it, thanks.  Monochrome = one
post.  I have adapters that convert various displays of this era.  I can
also try using one of three color cable connectors, perhaps in some cases
one of the three leads will suffice.  I don't know what I will attach it
to, maybe a DEC 5000 or something with a display port and keyboard port
that are separated.

Were these on par with things like the PS/2 monochrome VGA display, I am
guessing the VR260 was not a graphics terminal, but I will learn soon

Here is a pic

Anyone use this display, like it?  Worth using?
