Missing a few caps, but great price on a 131 and the harder to find black SDL cable that's included is worth the price on its own.


Edit: Sold quickly

Wow, that seller didn't know what they had.

It's an early '131 with the Model F-type barcode label, too. Nice.

OMG!  Finally a picture of an M that looks like mine!  Yes, this is about the same level of grime each of my Ms started with.  And I just put them to use.  Over time, my fingers have cleaned off the grime so most of the keycaps are normal again, but you can tell I don't use certain keys very often.

Very nice deal for whoever got that one--should be in almost perfect working condition if the barrel plate doesn't have any cracks.  :thumb:
