Here is the photo of my grab bag from PMK. All keys turned over - as far as I can tell!

There was a time when everyone would post their crap bag key caps sorted into colours, sizes, shapes, rarity and so on, when you might actually get a few good ones in the bag.

Those were the days ...
"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But thatís incorrect. Itís in HHKBís slogan, but when Americaís cowboys were in the middle of a trip and their horse died, they would leave the horse there. But even if they were in the middle of a desert, they would take their saddle with them. The horse was a consumable good, but the saddle was an interface that their bodies had gotten used to. In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada

What do you have in the row 1 sa Lime flavor, I need a few keycaps to deal with volume keys situation I am having.. Looks stupid with the equals/backspace/tab/esc keys instead of blanks for volume keys...

It's worth as much as you want to pay for it.

I stopped because I have to add on postage to Australia, which made it somewhat less cost-effective.

I did get some interesting keycaps in my first bag, second one not so much.  Lately PMK have been putting a few deliberate novelty caps in each bag to make it more worthwhile, however the bags tend to sell out in a matter of minutes these days.

You'd have to be extremely lucky to be quick enough to get one, so this question is probably largely irrelevant.

I actually took this grab bag to the last Portland kbd meetup and we all had a fun time going through it and taking whatever anyone wanted (although I did separate out some of the ones I really wanted before doing so). Might do it again or next time all pitch in for a grab bag each meetup (if we can get one).

ok, i'll play. i couldn't bring myself to sort the {white,beige} keys. this is my 1st grabbag, and overall it was pretty underwhelming. i knew they were mostly 2nds, but i'd say half have an obvious defect. but only 7 were completely unusable (upon quick inspection).

i got lots of nice pulse modifiers. a few cool randoms. and and array of multi color blanks.

i made a little key jar for my desk at work. my favorites are at the end. any idea what set is the purple with the golden yellow legends? it's beautiful.

If anyone is looking to sell SA keys, I'm interested

It's very unlikely anyone will have a complete set in a crap bag.

I'm not sure what you mean by "complete"?

I know plenty of people buy multiple grab bags, and some grab bag batches are only SA runs, so I'm thinking there might be someone willing to part from 22 R1, 12 R2, 12 R3, and 12 R4 keycaps.
