SMK Green switches??
« on: Fri, 18 January 2019, 02:59:34 »
Hi all,

So I was looking around eBay for more vintage boards (Can't stop, won't stop :p) and I found these SMK Alps mount Green switches on a Monterey K104 board?



As far as I know, SMK Green Alps have never been documented before! Are my eyes playing tricks on me? Does the image have broken white balance? Or is there a genuine new switch that we have not seen before?

Or am I just plain wrong.

I don't see any green in that picture ...

Must be my eye color deficiency kicking in, what color does it look like to you?

IMO looks like what happened to one of those old fake alps model m boards where the stem of the switch was normally blue, but yellowed or something over time. I doubt its something new since that looks like a typical smk blue board.
