[Sold] White Whale Ahoy!

From our very own Ekeppel. I am adding black keys to mine just like this but leaving the F and J keys white.

You can either buy clothes or buy keyboards, it's that simple. No one who is not very rich can do both. Pay no attention to your clothes and no attention at all to the mode, and buy your clothes for comfort and durability, and you will have the clothes money to buy keyboards.

I found this literally 5 minutes before this got posted here! If only I could afford such a wonderful keyboard.

They are from a Selectric II, and actually more of a deep brown than black.  I love those old Typewriter keys, and they come in some nice colors to spice up boards like this. :-)

The prices are up
And from the woodwork they come.
Maybe, with some luck.
