Ebay listings of the company I work for, including SSK, M5-2

I figured this is the most appropriate place for these since I'm making a little commission on these boards and it's better to be safe than sorry.

I have guidelines to follow based on the prevailing rates.  It was in a stack of random keyboards; I'm sure there are thousands just like that all around the world in other such stacks of keyboards in computer shops, offices, recyclers, etc, but people on ebay pay hundreds of dollars for SSKs so we try to get it. 

Tonight there will be a Wang terminal keyboard with a bunch of Cherry relegendable keycaps (almost a whole keyboard's worth) along with some old Apple keyboards.

More are up; a black AT101W, an assortment of mechanical Apples, Alps Glidepoint keyboard for Mac serial number 419, another NMB, and the terminal keyboard (Wyse not Wang, excuse me!).

because a lot of time buying from taobao is all depends on luck. most of the seller don't actually have the items in stock, and you will almost never know the condition until you receive the item.
and also, just look at your first link and the last link, it is the same picture but from different seller...

Does the Gateway Anykey 2000 have doubleshot MX compatible caps?
Were our leaders just stupid? Well, maybe. But there’s a deeper explanation of the profoundly self-destructive behavior of Trump and his allies: They were all members of America’s cult of selfishness. You see, the modern US right is committed to the proposition that greed is good, that we’re all better off when individuals engage in the untrammeled pursuit of self-interest. In their vision, unrestricted profit maximization by businesses and unregulated consumer choice is the recipe for a good society.
Support for this proposition is, if anything, more emotional than intellectual. I’ve long been struck by the intensity of right-wing anger against relatively trivial regulations, like bans on phosphates in detergent and efficiency standards for light bulbs. It’s the principle of the thing: Many on the right are enraged at any suggestion that their actions should take other people’s welfare into account. This rage is sometimes portrayed as love of freedom. But people who insist on the right to pollute are notably unbothered by, say, federal agents tear-gassing peaceful protesters. What they call “freedom” is actually absence of responsibility.
Rational policy in a pandemic, however, is all about taking responsibility. The main reason you shouldn’t go to a bar and should wear a mask isn’t self-protection, although that’s part of it; the point is that congregating in noisy, crowded spaces or exhaling droplets into shared air puts others at risk. And that’s the kind of thing America’s right just hates, hates to hear. Anger at any suggestion of social responsibility also helps explain the looming fiscal catastrophe.  – Paul Krugman 2020-07-28 NYT

I don't think so, I go back in tomorrow night so I'll let you know when I get home, probably around midnight EST.

OK dude this is what the Gateway is rocking for switches and keycaps:



I did my best to get a scale in the photographs as I have no familiarity with the MX family and compatibles, believe it or not.

Edit:  Oh, yeah, I got some more stuff listed including an AT Model F:

Other than another AT101W I don't think much of it will cause anyone here's skirt to fly up, though.

I am not personally interested in it, but those do have a good reputation with draftsmen and graphic artists because of all the programmable keys.

$75 seems high, I think I sold a couple in the $30-$35 + shipping range, but it was a few years ago.

Thanks for the advice and the usage info; We've got some more of them and I'll be sure to use that in the descriptions.  If it doesn't sell I'll see about dropping the price down, but I don't have total control over pricing.  $75 is high in my opinion too, frankly, but people seem to pay that for them, so, y'know, whatever.  I mean, there's no way I'd pay $300 for what in my opinion is a castrated Model M, but those SSKs seem able to fetch stupid money.  If I was going to spend $300 on a tiny keyboard, I'd go in for one of those new Model Fs that somebody (here?) got produced, which isn't a bad price considering it's basically the same as a Topre HiPro yet they got a keyboard that hasn't been made in 22 years into production again, even if for a smallish run.

I've seen what we have in stock, and some of them are absolute gold, there's a telecoms-industry board full of Cherry blacks that I can't decide if I want for myself yet, a Sanders Associates 720 graphics terminal keyboard (missing a bunch of whole keyswitches, though :( ), so on and so forth.  I'll post more here whenever something I think the assembled Geeks might have an interest in is listed.  Was it one of us who took the PC AT Model F?
