Nah probably not. I know most Samsung branded boards have blue alps, but I’m pretty sure I distinctly remember this having Futabas.

2 interesting keyboards in this lot https://buyee.jp/item/yahoo/auction/o324638687 First one looks to have very good keycaps and my gut says Cherry/Alps. Second one is a beauty too.

This is a screencap from "The Farthest", a documentary on the Voyager spacecraft. What's the keyboard? The caps are gorgeous. IMG_4279.jpeg

BTC foam and foil. Some of the 5060s had MX mount stems, others had Keytronics style split stems, but both were foam and foil. No actually- I was going to get this board, but I waited too long (still a bit salty lol). I asked the seller for a pic and it appears to be some sort of prototopre of some...

Re: Model M Problems

Might have screwed up something in the SDL port, since he pulled it out and probably didn't push the 2 clips on the cable inward. Not sure if that's what he did, but I just thought I'd bring it up. Sorry that happened that realllly blows. Best of luck getting it working!

The font, the lock LEDs, and the metal backplate all suggest foam and foil.
Yep! The only way I could tell is the keycap font. I know the early XT space invader boards had a near identical case and backplate, but the font is definitely the giveaway here.

Re: Unknown Brand Keyboard on Ebay

When I first saw it I got linear space invader vibes, but looking closer at it I am 99% positive it is foam and foil, probably linear. I can tell due to the very distinct font.

Never in the many years I was a regular at the MIT flea did I find a particularly nice keyboard. I haven't been in almost ten years but I feel like it was going downhill when I left. That is a shame. I haven't been in probably the same amount of time, and I never looked for keyboards when I went. L...

So hard to get a hold of any blue alps nowadays :(
Way too many non Alp keyboard enthusiast destroy them just because they think they are junk! White Alp probably next to become rare. and then probably a Cherry MX vintage black too!
I wouldn't doubt it :(
