The Amiga uses the 1352 mouse also.  Most amiga mice after the 1000 
have a Molded (sealed plastic) DB9 connector that has a slim ferule 
(metal band around (and parallel to) the holes - some are labeled 
1352 or amiga.   The 1350 (joystick mouse) and 1351 look identical on 
the outside with a big chunky plastic block with metal shield that 
has screw holes on the wings perpendicular to the DB9 holes (almost 
never identifed on the bottom). The A1000 mouse has a right angle 
bend on the DB9 connector.  A look inside at the chip(s) will tell 
you which is which - the 1351 has that proprietary ic (I don't recall 
designation ATM).  The Amiga 1352 has a common type of logic IC.
