2x Original doubleshot Geekhack MX caps.

Part of the original run, initially bought by BitFlipper and I bought two off of him. Pictured on the boards they currently live on that are fresh out of storage. No idea what price they go for now, been away from keyboards for years, and am now rationalizing my collection to stuff I'll actually use (IBM and MX blues mostly).

Honestly not all that much nowadays since artisan keycaps effectively replaced the spot keys like this held in the community back in the day. Realistically I'd say tops around $20 to $30 a piece to someone who appreciates the history behind them, all the way down to the the retail price of like $3 to $5 a piece depending who would be willing to buy them. Someone correct me if I am wrong, but that would be my valuation of them.

Yeah, I would say barely a few bucks each. You can also get them made through SP pretty easily and they're quite common in grab bags.

OK, cheers for the answers. They can stay on the boards they lived on for years. As I said, wildly out of the loop. Will be back to price a few boards when they're all cleaned and working perfectly from a stay in storage.
