[Help] Price Check: How much is my _____ worth?

Hey guys, as I'm kind of at my endgame now with the Unsaver, I plan to sell some keyboards that I don't need anymore. Maybe you can help me out how much they are worth.

- Beamspring 5251
- IBM Model M SSK (very good condition)
- IBM Model M Industrial (round label)
- Realforce 87UB (45g)
- IBM Model F XT
- Chinese Alps Dyesubs
- ~105 perfect Alps SKCM Brown
- KBParadise V80MTS + Olivetti Keycaps (both never used)
- Cherry G80-1800HPMDE

Thanks! :)

Hi All,
I've put up a HHKB PRO2 (White with Printed Keys) for Sale in the Classified Section in the last 24 hours.
The asking price is £220 including delivery from the UK.
This is basically the price I paid for it a couple of months back.

Can you guys please confirm it's a fair asking price considering no VAT, Customs, Handling fees, etc?

Here's an image gallery

Thanks! Appreciating your feedback ;)

I'd offer you a negotiable $80 for it right now if it had the original "HELP" and "STOP" keycaps. Without those, its humor is gone, so I'll pass. Still might be worth that much to somebody, though.

If you look at one of my listings and add 45% for "it's in Europe" inflation, you end up with ~75 USD or ~71 EUR.

OK thanks, you sure that the "it's in Europe" inflation is valid for these, it's Cherry after all?!?

Yours is also in nicer shape and I charge more than most for shipping because I use USPS phat, I mean flat, rate board game boxes.

At the very least it's worth 65 EUR, imo.

I'd say $0.30 for the salmon alps and $3-4 for the lock switch? Depends on the condition of the switches, though.
It seems like you're parting out a AEK.

Probably depends on the condition and the keycap language!

Broken/missing keycaps is a BIG problem here

It really depends on what shape it is in. 400 is too much for any 5251, it would have to be in really good condition. 150 is OK if it does not have any real damage or missing parts.

You can use keycaps from IBM seletric typewriters, if the beamspring missing some.

How much could I sell an ISO Novatouch brand new unopened in box for?
I know it's been discontinued by CM, and prices for them are on the rise

although I am not sure if the ISO layout is less desired...
Thanks

Beamspring. So worth three figures for sure. Not the best layout though.

Exactly, you say more than 100€, how much more? :evil:
150€ is reasonable, 500€ is not. :mrgreen:

He said more than 100, I will offer maybe 150 and stop there because it is nice but it has a horrible Italian layout!

Start at 100 and go up from there. Although it's a huge form factor, and perhaps a layout not to your liking, beamsprings are worth the bother 100%.

The Italian layout is fair enough. Better to an English language typist's eye than QWERTZ or vile AZERTY! But yes, the XT layout overall is always just as awkward. Really depends on if you're buying it to convert and type, or just for beamspring bragging rights!
