IBM Model F AT at a decent price?

Feel like 180 is a fair price for an AT that seems to have everything in order. Thoughts?

That's a decent price for an AT.

If you lurk on ebay for a few months you might see one pop for a bit less from a seller ignorant of the market, you might not.  Likely not.   Those get snatched up quick anway.

XT's are selling at the low end for $100 and usually more, the AT prices aren't coming down any time soon.

Yeah I thought so. I have an AT already so I'm not sure if I can justify owning two haha. Hopefully someone who really wants it gets it before the sale ends.

I have been eying that one up myself ... I already have 2 though, and an F77, with another on order. I need to resist the urge.
