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.

I can't imagine shipping one of those bricks to German 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.

For those awash in anxiety and alienation, who feel that everything is spinning out of control, conspiracy theories are extremely effective emotional tools. For those in low status groups, they provide a sense of superiority: I possess important information most people do not have.   For those who feel powerless, they provide agency: I have the power to reject “experts” and expose hidden cabals.   As Cass Sunstein of Harvard Law School points out, they provide liberation:   If I imagine my foes are completely malevolent, then I can use any tactic I want.  
The GOP’s challenge is how to harness that Trump turnout without, well, Trump himself. Because it can’t be stressed enough, the hidden deplorables aren’t Republican or even conservative. They have no ideology other than the ideology of destruction. Their life is ****. They want to bring down everyone else to their levels.

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.
