Futaba "data sheet"
I have found that being close to the model number is often
good enough for these displays. The second link below has a
.pdf of a Futaba data sheet that is close.
Sometimes, a big customer like IBM might have defined some of their
own commands in the uC of the VFD. If you can find the standard
command set (The serial connection should be straightforward),
then you might be in luck.
Don't get frustrated! You can learn a lot from reverse engineering stuff
