The picture is the pad-printed model (PPAUS) and judging by the legends it's not used much. Perhaps 20 Euro to begin with, or much less in bulk. I don't really follow the keyboard market, so my opinion is not worth much.

I am a commie. It was a locally produced keyboard (early 1980s), so it might as well be local design/clone. Since getting access to mine could take close to a year, I will ask a friend to search his collection. It could have been like this: http://www.pravetz8.com/BulComputers_Pictures/Pravetz_82.jp...

IIRC, the one I used had the reed switch vertically mounted.
I could still have one in possession in a remote location, or available in friend's collection.

IIRC, boring linear. But the subtle reed click was pleasant.

Yes. I spent good parts of my childhood on Apple II clones with reed switch keyboards.

Do KBC have dyesub ones? I remember only lasered.
