Grimy indeed. It's also missing the original F12 key. Don't think I'd pay much more than the current bid given its condition but a good find nonetheless  :thumb:

The one I linked to sold for $341.  A similar SSK, that I didn't link to, sold around the same time for $275.

These vintage SSKs are nice, but I'd just as soon get a new Unicomp Mini M for $121.

Releases of modern "updated" versions of classic keyboards usually don't drive prices for originals down, as might have been expected.
Catherine Glenn Foster, president and CEO of Americans United for Life, explains that these abortions become “bodies that are thrown away in medical waste bins,” and then she reveals something that no one in Washington, DC knew: Washington’s electrical grid is partially dependent on abortions. What, you say? Here’s Foster to explain that fetuses, “in places like Washington, DC, are burned to power the lights of the city’s homes and streets.”
