It's kind of hard to tell, I might go with ABS, but I'm probably wrong. :))

Just wondering, what keyboard were these from? They look interesting

They look like an abortion in ABS, but the only way to know fire sure is to test.

On the wiki it says that they're double shot, so my guess is that they're ABS.

Drop them in a glass of clean water and see if the float or sink:

Float = ABS
Sink = PBT

Make sure to get the air out from under the caps.

They're most likely ABS, but other boards of that era used PBT caps, so they could be either.

the simple fact of the matter is that they are not WORTHY of being judged.
