Right Cherry models that have an L as the first letter after the numeric model number will have lasered legend. If the keys are light colored they will be PBT, and if they are dark color POM. Of course there are always some exceptions. Such as the blank models which have L even though there are no l...

Some have these little plastic shims around the switch base, prevent opening.

Oh yeah, the K1 has those plastic blocks around each switch... so it's about the same as if they had used a plate as the prevent the tops from opening in the same way... would have to desolder all the switch and pull them off. Probably better to find one of those €5 G80-1800 basic models, or maybe s...

Looks like A profile to me, the front edge of the Alt appears to be above the spacebar not lower as it would be on B profile.

Neat find, never seen that one before. The other Apricot branded G80 I have seen before were all just 1000/3000 based models with nothing unique besides the Apricot logo. I don't understand why change size with the Alt keys though, how very odd and completely pointless. I fixed loads of old Cherry b...

For whatever mysterious reasons, with GMK pricing goes very different when you split things up. It's cheaper to keep more stuff in a set. From some discussion at GH for those that don't go over there... Lots of issues about having mix of A/B profile for 1.25 winkey user. Suggest to make the base set...

Right, it is a very heavy commercial grade printer. I think the one I won was an even older version. Pretty sure it used some old style connection and I couldn't find any mention of x64 Windows drivers so it would have been dubious to take it when the shipping was something like 3x what I won it for.

Surely some will fuss about it, but since standard US legends are the primary legends, and it doesn't add in additional keys I have a feeling most people will be OK with the side printed legends as it was with Dolch and GB layout. I would like to move through various 'major' languages in this way, s...

Mine was originally a G81, I put in a G80 PCB myself that I modded to reds before I sold the thing. It's seller was in England... so I elected to NOT take the label printer with it even though I technically won it due to the shipping costs. I think the labelprinter has ML switches on it's keypad?

Interesting. I have never come across one of those before, and I have bought LOADS of old Wyse, Link, Reynolds, etc various brands that all share the same reference design keyboards and have never gotten any with those switch. But then, I think the ones I have had were made in Korea mostly not India.

Dolch G80-1813 with US layout usually something around $80-120, DE, GB, or other may command more depending on who happens to be looking for that layout.

I'm hoping Miami Nights will be more appealing. I think we need some Miami style in GMK keys, but maybe a bit less eye bleeding. I put in my pricing/mock up requests to GMK so I hope they get back to me soon. Will start as soon as I have all the relevant info back from them.

Right, also it sound like to me vsev says only 1 key isn't a doubleshot so that makes pad printing the only possibility.

Looking closely, I am pretty sure it's pad print ABS. If you look hard you can see the clearcoat edge on those multi legends keys. The 2500HAU Polish AS400 layout board also were pad print (and quite bad rough pad print at that) as I had one of those for a little while too.

I had a 3180HPU once upon a time. It's a nice keyboard which does indeed have some oddities. Mine didn't have a 1u shift key (it didn't need to be rare anymore but that modifiers pack in my groupbuy didn't make it), but it did have a 2x2 units enter key on the numpad side. The touchpad mouse buttons...

Doesn't look yellowed to me, Goupil has a more tan/darker tone than standard beige keys so it looks like it's supposed to. I have the exact same board in US layout that came with my Goupil Golf 286 system. You are correct that it is a 2KRO board, same as most other 1800 variants. Looks to be in pret...

I say 70-80EUR for that goupil. It's still in fair shape though it looks like some of the keys are shiny, but you get that unique goupil colorway. If it was just a standard beige 1000 model then 15-20EUR would be just right.

It's interesting reading some of the comments about the Cherry beige mods set in my groupbuy. Granted it's larger than many people would think is necessary at first glance. But most of you are forgetting that Cherry made dozens of shades of 'beige' between 1984 and 2009. You need all those keys so i...

G80-0499, I say probably something like $60-80 depending on which layout it is for common ones, more if it's something interesting and harder to find. Maybe a little bit more if you can find an interested Commodore collector that has a machine the keyboard actually works on. It's an interesting an n...

In my experience putting brown in G80-3000 won't help it's value any... but it might help you move it if you attract someone that would never buy a board with blacks for example.
