Which color pink? Tickle me Pink, Octopink, I think there's another that I'm forgetting.
Each one will demand a premium, of course, but I've never seen a Tickle me Pink for public sale, thus they may drive a higher premium.

I looking for any Pink skull Topre for my birthday :(. Can you tell me the exact price :(

pls help :(

Original price, somewhere around $20. To find one now, probably $100+. Not many seem to be offered, so you will have to offer quite a bit, or a rare trade for one.

Price check on 11 month old Filco MJ2 UK ISO layout with MX Browns. Comes with original Filco keycaps, plastic protective cover, PS/2 to USB adapter, black Filco USB cable, black velcro Filco cable tie, Filco keycap puller, blank white WASDKeyboard keycaps and a custom made 2 meter white MDPC-X sleeved USB cable. All of this was bought new and cost me around 165 in total so how much do you think I could expect for it?

Is pricing a dead Dell AT101 (spilled soda on it) or it's keycaps at $10 good?
Possible at all that I could get more?

How much should I price the harvested working switches for (black alps, not sure if complicated or not)?

You guys are more knowledgeable than I, what's the below set of caps worth? Alpha's and numpad are double-shot and from what i've been told they are Cherry legends.

It's a good width!  If it's half-width it's too narrow, and full-width is too wide.

Are the keys showing epic shine or is it just the flash?
unless they have some unforeseeable downside (like they're actually made of cream cheese cunningly disguised as ABS)

Just the flash. I'd rate the caps a 9/10 condition wise, just need to give that pesky tilde key a bit of retrobright. The numpad keys are a better representation of what they look like in real life.

Hmmm, $3 plus materials for retrobrite? :D I am not sure how much those would go for, need help from the Cherry God Lysol.

Are you actually planning on selling them? I may be interested in that set. Unless you are just trying to see how great of a deal you got :)

Kind of on the fence as to whether I want to sell at the moment, absolutely lusting after the Dolch set at Originative so these may not even go on my board!

Do NOT sell only the caps, the entire board should be sold. AT layout Cherry boards that are in decent shape are not so easy to come by. For the entire board I would put it at $90 given condition and assuming it is properly working.

If you can retrobright it successfully so it looks like new it may net you another $30. I guess it has MX blacks?

Clicky or tactile? Whites are the quiet click, but feel like a heavier blue. Can you take pics of some switches?

Hmn... hope it is not MY switch, which I suppose could be possible. Linear clears/whites would be great though. Now pics are an absolute must. If it is MY then I will give my revalue the keycap set only.

You're getting it from ascaii? I hope you have more luck buying something than I did with them, still waiting since February for them to send me the G80 I bought from them.

So, with linear clears it could add more value to the right buyer bueller. Or, if it were me I would probably take them out and keep them for another board as I am quite fond of those linear clear/white switch. Replace them with blacks or whatever before selling.

Price check - 61 blue switches or stems (wtb)

Assuming they're like new, I always think $0.50 a switch is a fair price for common used switches.  If they're a little grungier, you should go a little cheaper.  Stems and springs I think usually go for something like $0.10-0.15 each, higher for the more rare ones. 


104 Vintage Cherry MX Blacks?

I'd say the same as kenmai9's Blues.  Some people will pay more for them, but, honestly, unless I see some empirical evidence proving them to be better or nicer in some way than modern Blacks, I wouldn't price them higher.  They're just more broken in.

Vintage blacks really are different. I have vintage blacks on brand new keyboard, like my esteemed ESA-3000HASRO among others. They are definitely noticably lighter and 'softer' smoother feeling action than new blacks made this year. Dare I say they feel even nicer than current production + lubed. If they are new vintage switch, maybe they are worth more... but I agree for used switch, it is a used switch and should be priced accordingly not considerably more as you can often pick up grimy old WY30-60 models off ebay for cheap which pretty much has vintage in them every time.
Now, if you are going for serious on vintage linear switch, the linear white/clear are where it is at. They are even nicer, in a sweet spot between old blacks and reds but super smooth.

The question is whether that's because the spring is slightly more compressed from age and use and the actuation is smoother because the slider is worn down from age and use or if it's because they're made differently.  Most the evidence I've seen points to the former.

WYSE still have their fans around. Good condition used set I think still get maybe $30 or something.

Comparing beat up used switch to new switch is a poor comparison. I am talking about comparing NIB 1991 vintage keyboard with NIB 2013 keyboard, both blacks. Old ones are different. The difference is not earth moving but it is there. I think thre is also a good deal of QC issue with ZF Cherry. I don't think they really care as much as Cherry did when they were their own.

OK, what's this guy worth? A 122-key Model F XT. I know the layout looks AT, but the connector isn't and the seller says it needs good old Soarer to work.

I obviously don't believe it is worth the asking price of 170 nor do I have said 170, but if you guys could give an affordable realistic estimate, I might get lucky to the owner with an offer.

(SPeaking of which, when was the last time someone was selling a 122 key Model F? I'm really interested in getting my hands on these things... definitely not my hands under these things though, considering how much they weight!)

Most of the modding can be done on your own once you break through the psychological barriers.

Is pricing a dead Dell AT101 (spilled soda on it) or it's keycaps at $10 good?
Possible at all that I could get more?

How much should I price the harvested working switches for (black alps, not sure if complicated or not)?

Anyone?

If spilling soda on it killed it then how are the switches still good?  Did you magically only spill on the controller or something?
Gotta collect them all

Within 24 hours of me making this post, something that hadn't been sold for weeks suddenly sold at $170BIN!

We have a rich lurker in our midst.

It was just listed yesterday, not for weeks. $170 isn't too bad for an F122 in that condition.
