This guy just pretty much stole this keyboard. I'd have killed to be there when it was listed.

It was a buy it now listing so was simply a matter of very good timing.  Doubt it was up long.

well i hope this person uses it and doesn't flip for large profit. I would love to own one of these but the price tag is preventing me

I'd do quite a few things for one of those keyboards, not all of them savory.

They are so unique and cool. I really want one just to hear the solenoid to be honest.

Seriously...right now, the only IBM 5251's on ebay (US market at least) are AT LEAST $2K
