Dusty as heck. (Or is it sand? Maybe the owner ran a beachside hot dog stand?). Probably just as well, as they're Cherry MY switches, not MX. But you guys like these DS keys, and they seem cheap enough for harvesting:

LOT 2x * G81-8000HPCUS / DOUBLESHOT / CHERRY G81-8000 Keyboard Black CARD Reader








Lot of 2, BIN $21.12 + 7.95 US shipping = $14.54 ea.

BTW, if you're not interested in these, there's no need to post about it—unless you're so bored that you want to bore the rest of us.  :?)

I'm interested in this lot but the seller won't ship to Italy. Is anyone up for proxying me the keyboards? I'm also willing to split the lot one keyboard each.
Thanks.

EDIT: Forgot to specify that I'm only interested in the keycaps.

EDIT 2: Found a proxy. Thanks.

Have bought from this seller and the ones i got before had almost new caps aside from the numpad. Great if you want some good WoB and dont mind throwing them in a tub with denture tabs.

Huh, these are still around. It's hard not to buy them myself.

there is more of these lots on ebay, I grabbed the lot of 2 for 30$ (after ship)

https://www.ebay.com/itm/182870616700 - 5 available at the time of this post

They are filthy and the caps oddly specific in where there is shine but they are still awesome caps, buy some some WoCMYK and you got a classic. if shine bothers you then I don't know what to say, only takes a few months to shine a GMK set you spend 200$ for. buy PBT then.

my wife saw me rip them out the boxes and pull off the caps and asked me wth i was doing, i was like "checking to make sure its the good stuff"

edit

As a disclaimer in case anyone wants to buy them off of the ebay lot page which still has 5 available. here is what you have to deal with

1. The caps lock is offset and will not work on a modern OEM board and on custom board you need to resolder the switch
2. The spacebar is offset and can not be used on any other board. originative sells GMK spacebars and really SP DCS will also work unless you are a super elitist.
3. The Alt, Ctrl, Menu, and Windows Keys for some reason are always pad printed--its something they did on all these boards.
4. but...that really does not matter because the entire bottom row is offset and cant be used on any other board
-- i mean really, if you really really want to go cheap. break off the stem, reapply with hot glue in the center, you may have to reglue at times
5. There is shine on oddly specific keys as these are POS boards, for example WASD on them are pretty much untouched.
