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.
But no matter how much smoking-gun evidence Cheney and the January 6 committee uncover, the Fox News crowd and YouTube rabbitholers are dead to the factual world. Their views will never change, and roughly two-thirds of them are still convinced Trump was the rightful winner in 2020, despite his year-long drought of producing a single shred of evidence to back his claim. Frankly, Cheney doesn't have the luxury of time to waste on a bunch of brain dead zombies.
Instead, Cheney made her goals perfectly clear this week, signaling that the committee would produce the evidence necessary to find Trump, and perhaps several of his co-conspirators, criminally liable for violating felony statute 18 U.S. Code 1512. To that end, Cheney used every public platform available to her this week to lay the groundwork for her case.
