Mind you the price is a placeholder and I am looking to see what is offered and I will lower price accordingly.

Although I would not be complaining if someone bought it outright.

offer was instantly declined at 350 and 500

why would someone want to pay more for a partially working kish when you can join a groupbuy for a brand new one for less than $500

Can't edit my post for some reason. But when you think about it $500 doesn't buy much anymore.

That's only 10 lock switches or one or two artisan caps.

I'll only pay money if you have the holy trinity: F50, F62, and F77 all new in box  ;)

I can't imagine why anyone would wanna pay more for the real thing over a replica. All these dummies paying millions for a real painting when they can print a copy off the web for free!

Imagine comparing keyboards to 'millions for a real panting'.

They're functionally identical, but great argument!

don't feel bad, it's functionally identical to a 356mini at a 5th of the cost. or maybe 6th now.

Once again the price is a placeholder, send me an offer that is reasonable for a keyboard of this RARITY.

Given the Symbolics went for $3,000 and APL Unsaver went for $2,000.
You can't even convert a Symbolics to USB. you just LOOK at it. It's a COLLECTORS ITEM.

Yeah I think a kishsaver is a relic and most were destroyed via banking policies making it an extinct species. There hasn't been one on Ebay in..... forever? I can't seem to find any auction for a Kishsaver.

Also people will pay $50,000 for a piece of cardboard "1st Edition Charizard" which has no function, cannot be played with, goes into a safe.

I really don't think my price is that outrageous compared to ridiculous things out there that go for high values.
Such as CARDBOARD.

For what it's worth, eBay auctions aren't kept in the web forever. They're archived and eventually deleted. The cache for that has been getting smaller and smaller over the years. I've seen merely a few month old auctions be deleted from search.
