Model M13 New-Old Stock: [Ended]
« on: Wed, 15 January 2020, 18:08:22 »

Price is quite high on this, as you can get a Model F XT, or an AT if you are really vigilant for this price, but it is new old stock, that's a rarity.

That was actually a decent price for a NOS black one, I'd say. They usually go for at least $150 used.

I actually did just get ... another F AT for just under this on Ebay. It arrived today. Those M13s are cool though.

It was there last night for sure, I saw it then. You need vigilance to find them for those sorts of prices.

I would say that I have a friend I have been trying to help get one, but he doesn't even want to spend $200, so it wouldn't be likely that I would find one that cheap before another $200 one anyway, I suppose. I could keep an eye out.

I can't imagine shipping one of those bricks to Germany will be cheap.

Not that it is cheap, but the USPS flat rate board game box goes international for around $80 and easily holds any keyboard, even a 122-key.

But I sympathize with the seller, I have pretty much stopped selling internationally on ebay for a variety of reasons, postage being only one of them.

That's a nice find, but I'd be surprised if that cable outer rubber doesn't disintegrate when touched.  The "flat" cables tend to do that after a long time.

That's a pretty fair price for an AT, I paid that, and they go for even more usually.
