Anyone know what this is? It looks like a sort of dome with slider, but not sure. I don't have the keyboard yet so can't comment on feel or sound. Thanks.
It is an wiki/Alps_dome_with_slider
Judging by the key above the numpad it is an AppleDesign keyboard.

Re: My luck lol

Bad luck, stuff like that always happens. BTW, it's not a 3000SAV, but a 3020SAV with, what appears like, 3000 keycaps.

Re: Alps or no? (clones/skcl/skcm?)

That's an ntc6251 on the left with alps clones. Here's the wiki page: https://deskthority.net/wiki/NTC_KB-6251#KB-6752EA And on the right is some dome with slider keyboard, don't really remember the name, but I'm sure it's not alps.

Re: Keyboards acquired in a year

nice! how did you acquire the canon one? I got it in a trade along with the nixdorf board. It was picked up by the previous owner on a flea market and was already missing the screws and the cable. That nixdorf! Very very nice. I wonder if the switches are as smooth as they say Well, they're a lot s...

Hi folks. So I got a few interesting boards over the last year and finally decided to share some pics. First one is Canon branded Alps Bigfoot . It features Alps SKCM Blue switches, gray-on-black Alps Electric doubleshots in ANSI BAE layout and a black case. There are no markings on the back of the ...

First one looks to have very good keycaps and my gut says Cherry/Alps.
Second one is a beauty too.
First one should have futaba switches.
