I wonder if this listing is for 10 keyboards:
https://www.ebay.com/itm/Posten-10X-Tas...3201330431

I'd say that's 38.25€ per board...

No, 4,43 € per board (incl. 6€ shipping). They must have tons of these type.They sell black versions too, so you can interchange the black POM keycaps with the white lasered PBTs and you get nice 80s-looking boards.. with USB. I bought some for me and for friends. (With red Esc-Keys)
But they scratchet the "Lauer & Fischer"-Logo out, cause they're dont allowed to sell under these Name. If these boards more yellow then white, you can easely seeing these location. And they have MX Black.

Most of the bids come from a single account with zero feedback. I'll bet it's a n00b who doesn't really know how much these things are actually worth (not to say anything about the colors on the keyboard itself, as they feel off).

I'm posting this here as the french finds subforum is a bit dead ATM.

Here's a Tandberg Data keyboard for sale in the Paris area for just 5€. Local pickup only unfortunately.

Is anybody familiar with this brand ? A quick googling makes me think this has Cherry MX blacks inside.

Replicate that size and shape and you can fit a full computer inside.

Overall shape reminds me of a Commodore 64.

Presumably a Tandberg TDV 3nnn board from the late 1980ies / early 1990s.

Oh cheers. I thought it was one of the late models built by Cherry. I'm tempted to grab it just to get a feel.

Bought it for $50. I'll take pics when it comes. Should be no surprises but it's a parallel ASCII keyboard which will have great vintage usability. Classic era look too!

That's one of the keyboards that came from an old IBM plant in upstate New York. It was quite the haul. She always has a lot of really neat vintage stuff for sale as well.

F122 in good condition for $300 shipped BIN, which is apparently quite a bargain for one nowadays:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/IBM-Model-F-Pa...SwlgNbFtkM

The seller does have recent negative feedback for listing a 3278 for $200 and then backing out, most likely because they later realized that it could sell for much more. Caveat emptor?

I have no idea how far behind the curve I am, but I just saw the IBM 5954339 Japanese Pingmasters from Mendlesons on ebay are now free shipping like the Chinese ones. So it's only $34.95 to get one now instead of around $50 in the US.

I grabbed one. Couldn't resist.

Yeah, for me it's still $61 to ship plus import taxes so not cheap at all. Would end up paying around $130-140.

Same, thats pretty close to the dream board. Too bad the shipping is 2 times the keyboard cost :roll:
