Re: [EU] WTS: Model M122 French Azerty Keycaps

This is obviously not a French, but a Belgian AZERTY keyboard.
Even with the funny way you assembled the keycaps, one can tell so by a few of them:

Call me old fashioned, but what about a good old certificate with embossed foil seal. A unique prize for the winner, with little to no resale value as it clearly states the name of the winner. Plus it looks good in a frame :)
I fully concur.

Are all the LEDs there red? That might suggest a slightly older model than amber. As far as I know, it wen...

I hope you’re not dreaming of stripping this absolutely unique vintage keyboard of its keycaps. Apparently there’s a lot of stuff which will not survive the actual gen...
