Grimy indeed. It's also missing the original F12 key. Don't think I'd pay much more than the current bid given its condition but a good find nonetheless  :thumb:

The one I linked to sold for $341.  A similar SSK, that I didn't link to, sold around the same time for $275.

These vintage SSKs are nice, but I'd just as soon get a new Unicomp Mini M for $121.

Releases of modern "updated" versions of classic keyboards usually don't drive prices for originals down, as might have been expected.
With the help of a populist former Fox News star and America’s richest man, Mr. Putin has gained a platform to justify his actions even as Russian and American journalists languish in his prisons. His favored candidate is poised to win the Republican presidential nomination while Congress weighs abandoning Ukraine to the tender mercies of Russian invaders.
Mr. Putin’s filibuster-style appearance with Tucker Carlson on Elon Musk’s social media platform amid the security aid debate on Capitol Hill driven by Donald J Trump offers a moment to reflect on the head-spinning transformation of American politics in recent years. A Republican Party that once defined itself through muscular resistance to Russia has turned increasingly toward a form of neo-isolationism with strains of sympathy for Moscow.
