Pretty sure these are all on point.

What is that?

As for the Amstrad keyboard, it would be Matsushita prong over membrane in which case (off-hand I don't recall if I ever saw what was inside that model of keyboard).

I recently got a mitsumi (KR-E99AC) with the same kind of pencil tray and LED sticker, only with big-ass Enter instead of ISO. I originally identified it based on a ¿Geekhack? post. It's linear foam&foil.

Just "KR"? That should be three letters long.

G81 has pretty bad switches and the caps of this one aren't very desirable either sadly, they are only lasered. At least it is the scooped homing, thick variety.

It's probably worth picking up if it's cheap since ISO-ES Cherry Corp caps are hard to come by, but I wouldn't spend more than like €10-15 euro on it. They are not bad caps, still Cherry profile and made of thick PBT.

Cherry MY, type 3 is pretty much guaranteed for a keyboard as recent as that

I'm guessing that you have KKR-E99AC which is Mitsumi KKR Type, a Mitsumi "hybrid" type.

Picture 1: Chicony, judging by the LED labels, so it will be rubber dome (it's not one of their known mechanical types)

Picture 2, bottom left: going by the LED label, Acer KB-102A or 6012, meaning that it's probably blue or white Alps (the picture on the wiki of the 6311 keyboards with that case have a different LED label, but you could easily end up with a 6311 with Acer switches instead!)

Yes, probably will be one like this:

Nothing interesting...:(

I guess I exaggerated a bit but an Acer KB-102A will be great :lol: , however I asked seller for model.

I'd guess vintage keytronic foam and foil, that profile is very much like other keytronic foam and foil keyboard's profile I've seen

Oh I don't know. If I could win something, it seems to be from the period, where it isn't IBM, it will most likely be the proverbial Random Ass Linear. Something HaaTa would own.

Weird ... that is definitely Acer, not a clone. Curious though, I didn't realise there was a KB-101 model with Acer switches!

Probably a 6312, with the KB-101 belonging to the rebranded Ataio name rather than Acer.

I guess the 6312 in the serial number kind of gives that away …
