These usually go for around $200 now, don't they? This one looks like it's in nice shape, too.

I'm not really sure what these go for. This particular one has been listed multiple times but the price has finally dropped to a more reasonable level. I think that all the NOS industrial cases available helps to keep the prices of these from going super crazy.

Interesting the price difference between industrial 101 and industrial SSK.
"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But that’s incorrect. It’s in HHKB’s slogan, but when America’s cowboys were in the middle of a trip and their horse died, they would leave the horse there. But even if they were in the middle of a desert, they would take their saddle with them. The horse was a consumable good, but the saddle was an interface that their bodies had gotten used to. In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada

This one went quickly enough, though.

I take it you're referring to Unicomp's stock of them? But you'd also need the authentic silver-on-black IBM logo found on Industrials, wouldn't you?

Yes it did go fairly quick. I was indeed referring to Unicomp's stock. These cases have the blue pill logo but reproductions of the industrial style badge have been made, although these are not 100% the same as the original. I thought about grabbing this one before it was posted here but didn't really need it as I am making my own industrial clone.

Which I bought, along with a Unicomp case, but the case has a surprisingly green hue to it.

James McGill Buchanan decided he needed to influence policy at a deeper level. In the ensuing years, he sought to lead an economic and political movement in which he stressed that “conspiratorial secrecy is at all times essential” to mask efforts to protect the wealthy elite from the will of the majority. In September 1973, Buchanan held the inaugural meeting of the International Atlantic Economic Society, arguing for the need to “create, support and activate an effective counterintelligentsia” to reshape the way people thought about government. He believed the center-left controlled academia and “effectively indoctrinated political actors in both parties,” MacLean writes. To fight back, conservatives needed to develop new surrogates who could be “indoctrinated” in turn with right-wing ideas, and then “mobilized, organized and directed” to disseminate them.
Seeing the name eventually led her to rooms full of documents that made clear how “operatives” had been trained “to staff the far-flung and purportedly separate, yet intricately connected, institutions funded by the Koch brothers and their now large network of fellow wealthy donors.” - Nancy McLean 2017

I am the proud new owner of this guy, it's my first Industrial model and I've been looking for one for a while! I wasn't aware there was a GB for the badges - if anyone has extra please PM me!

I didn't find anyone with the SSK badges. wobbled @ DT likely has more of the full size badges. He mailed me a couple but have not received them after a couple weeks, but he is from the UK and I am in the US.

Congrats! And nice deal you got. Enjoy the new board :)

I managed to nab a similar one (pretty much pristine condition) for $190 a bit over a year ago.
