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.

In the sorriest days of the Watergate scandal, Nicholas von Hoffman compared the Nixon presidency to “a dead mouse on the American family kitchen floor. The question is: who is going to pick it up by the tail and drop it in the trash?” It would be premature to write off the Trump presidency as a deceased rodent lying on the linoleum. In its nasty defensiveness, it is closer to a cornered rat. It still has plenty of ugly fight left. But we are at the beginning of the endgame and it is not premature to start imagining how to pick through the damage the Trump presidency will leave behind and future-proof the republic so that It Can’t Happen Here never happens again. The moment Trump leaves the White House for early retirement, jail, a sanitarium, or a Russian refuge, let the reckoning begin. Pay no heed to those pious owls in politics, the op-ed pages, and cable-news panels—pastoral Voices of Civility such as Jon Meacham and David Gergen—who will caution that “now is not the time” to be raking over the recent past, casting recriminations, and turning Schadenfreude into tasty casseroles; the nation must move forward and let the healing process begin. To such thumb twiddlers, it’s never the right time to sift through the debris, apportion responsibility, and name the guilty parties; this is why it took more than a year to establish a 9/11 commission, and its final report was analytical, rhetorical mush. The day after Trump is deposed will be the day to get cracking on addressing what got him to where he never should have been. – James Walcott 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.
