PC - Full-size Filco with MX Black switches, bought new in December, little-to-no use (no visible wear). Stock keycaps. I'm reconsidering going for a TKL, so I want to figure out if I can sell this thing at a small enough loss to make that worthwhile, or if I need to suck it up (I'm using it for gaming, and I'm reaching further for my mouse than I should be).

Although I can't give you any kind of price quote I know in the past that TKL Filcos with Blacks have a been a tough sell in the Classifieds here.

Usually around a 20% discount off retail price is required to be able to sell second hand goods even with very light use. Further, full-size Filcos are not that popular, particularly with MX Blacks, so you may have to be prepared to shoulder a bit more of a loss if you want to get rid of it.

Found a new in box IBM Model M 1391401 without cable.
Factory sealed and never opened, until i opened it,  Dated April 1992

I've ordered a cable off of ebay for $15 and free shipping to try it out.

It has a SDL cable port, a rectangular enter key, springs in the keys and a white/gray IBM logo in the top left hand corner.
I doubt it's actually NIB if it doesn't have a cable. That being said, you could probably get $60 shipped out of it easily if it's actually NIB.


I got my camera out to take this pic.
Pristine, still attached to the foam carrier, with original tape in original box.

the full size high-res pic is here

Sounds like it wouldn't be too cheap.
Filco zero costs...a little bit. Then to mod it and source the orange alps.
I know nothing of the prices, but if you consider the components it's made of.

Filco Zero stock seem to have gone for $100 around here more recently. Plus add on something for the mod is worth... I don't know the value of orange Alps.

I got a brand new filco Majestouch 2 Ninja Cherry red tenkeyless for Christmas... I decided I still liked my brown better so I moved the ninja caps to the MX brown.

Now I have a new pristine cherry red keyboard with no key caps is it worth anything ?


I guess I could ship it with the original brown caps but a few are missing and they wouldn't be pristine like they keyboard itself

Brand new Filco reds with no caps, still probably worth quite a bit. Could probably sell it for over $100 still. maybe $120.

Sounds like you bought a CM QFR (maybe from Amazon for $55 shipped?) to harvest the case and switches. You could probably sell the plate and PCB for like $20 or something. But you could do what I did with my leftover goodies, and give them to a new member to experiment with. Makes you feel good to give. :)

But I do understand that you're a college student, and may not be in a position financially to give something away that you might be able to sell when money is that tight.

You just have to think what your buyer is getting for their money. In this case, a new complete CM QFR can be had for $70, not on sale. They will have to source a case and switches to have something usable, and you would be lucky to get those for less than $50.

tl;dr Maybe $20?

Yeah, with all the members looking to build Phantoms soon this will probably sell quickly. However, you need 60 posts to make a new post in the classifieds.

They are brushed aluminum keys. They were sold by a member of KBDMania (I think) named Scarface, hence the name of the set. See here for more info on Longweight's blog.

Get a older 149 with semi flex on the nib it will definitely be better for calligraphy. Not so much of a fan of the porcelain I was going to get one myself but played with one in person and didnt really do it for me, I would rather get myself another 149 then that but thats just me.

I have a year of the golden dragon MB B nib I need to sell, awesome 138 design but i need it other then a desk pen so I want to pick up a vintage 138 or a hemingway

Does scarface fit a tkl board fully? Even though I don't think I could afford the set, I'd say $400-500. Although it would look pretty swag on a kmac 2....
Maybe I would buy it....
