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.

When a society is healthy, it is saved from all this by robust communication. Individual people still embrace or reject evidence too hastily, still apportion blame tribally, but civil contact with people of different perspectives can keep the resulting distortions within bounds. There is enough constructive cross-tribal communication—and enough agreement on what the credible sources of information are—to preserve some overlap of, and some fruitful interaction between, world views.
Now, of course, we’re in a technological environment that makes it easy for tribes to not talk to each other and seems to incentivize the ridiculing of one another. Maybe there will be long-term fixes for this. Maybe, for example, we’ll judiciously amend our social media algorithms, or promulgate practices that can help tame cognitive biases.
Meanwhile, the closest thing to a cure may be for all of us to try to remember that natural selection has saddled us with these biases—and also to remember that, however hard we try, we’re probably not entirely escaping them. In this view, the biggest threat to America and to the world may be a simple lack of intellectual humility. Robert Wright - Wired 2018

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.
