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

They always said that in America, anyone could become president. I guess this proves it.

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 think that all the NOS industrial cases available helps to keep the prices of these from going super crazy.

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.

There was a GB for silver on black IBM logos

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

In 1979 Jimmy Carter warned of a spiritual crisis that he identified as toxic to American ideals: "Too many of us now tend to worship self-indulgence and consumption. Human identity is no longer defined by what one does, but by what one owns. But we’ve discovered that owning things and consuming things does not satisfy our longing for meaning. You see every extreme position defended to the last vote, almost to the last breath by one unyielding group or another. We see a balanced and fair approach that demands sacrifice, a little sacrifice from everyone, abandoned like an orphan without support and without friends. We have lost our way … because we have exalted “a mistaken idea of freedom"; our self-indulgence had led us to assert every right as absolute, every form of compromise or regulation as inimical to freedom, and to elevate the very avatar of self-absorption to the highest office in the land.” (ie Reagan!) Carter warned the nation against following the “path that leads to fragmentation and self-interest”, for “down that road lies a mistaken idea of freedom, the right to grasp for ourselves some advantage over others”.

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.
