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.
The difference in characterization of crime and who commits it skews what criminality looks like demographically. "What we're seeing so far is very similar to the process that we see with Islamic violent Jihad radicalization," said former FBI Assistant Director Frank Figliuzzi, "This wanting to belong to a cause greater than yourself, wanting to get affirmation from a group who may not even know who you are or ever met you. And then feeling like you're part of this deployment, this cause. You heard him say on the clip 'It's my job to protect this.'
No, it's not your job. But you think it is. And video last night shows him walking around roaming around with the assault rifle not really doing much of protecting anything." Figliuzzi made it clear that calling these characters "troubled" is a misnomer. "I would assert," Figliuzzi continued. "that it's time we stopped using the word ‘troubled’ with regard to white young people who act out like this and start thinking about the radicalized term that we used when people of color or people of Islamic faith act out like this. This is a radicalization process that's happening. It happened with the El Paso shooter in Texas. We kept hearing he was troubled. No, he was radicalized. And it's happening online."

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!
