It's a beautiful board in immaculate condition.  Cool find.  Love the ebay user name "mmflp" (mechmarketflip?).

If I wasn't stuck with student loans, I would actually love to buy it. Maybe someday ... It's such an awesome keyboard! haha I know right? Three NIB Unsavers were sold about 10 months ago on mech market for nearly $2k each. Now curious if he was one of them.

Seems reasonable. Ordinary used ones easily sell for half that amount.
"I never understood wind. I know windmills very much, I have studied it better than anybody. I know it is very expensive. They are made in China and Germany mostly, very few made here, almost none, but they are manufactured, tremendous if you are into this tremendous fumes and gases are spewing into the atmosphere. You know we have a world, right? So the world is tiny compared to the universe. So tremendous, tremendous amount of fumes and everything. You talk about the carbon footprint, fumes are spewing into the air, right spewing, whether it is China or Germany, is going into the air. A windmill will kill many bald eagles. After a certain number, they make you turn the windmill off, that is true. By the way, they make you turn it off. And yet, if you killed one, they put you in jail. That is OK. But why is it OK for windmills to destroy the bird population?" - Donald Trump - Turning Point USA speech - 2019-12-22

This looks to be from the same batch of those nib unsavers found a while back judging by the custom data entry keys which remind me of some early Lexmark era Model M keys. I want one but hey I have a new Model F77 on the way  :D

First of all it's not new, it's refurbished. It also has several scuffs and scratches which I confirmed with the seller. Also seller refuses to give proper high res pics. This should be sold as used. Don't trust a seller with no reviews.

Was gonna buy this but waiting for a proper NIB.

Yeah, this looks to be one of the ones that were on mechmarket for $2k fairly recently.  Ironically, since ebay charges a 10% final value fee, it would need to sell for $2200 just for the seller to break even.  Isn't quite as exciting of an auction to watch with only 2 bidders so far and one retracted bid, but guess we'll see what happens!
