Also, is that branding on the bottom of the switch in your last picture?

Here's some pictures of the orange switch keyboard. Sorry if this posts twice, some wacky thing happened.

3 pins? Obnoxiously clicky?

Could this be an Omron B3G-S clone?

Fischer Price Omrons, that's something you don't see every day.
Obnoxiously clicky you say,I may need to track one of those down.

Can anyone identify this for me?
Turns out it's one of these (ATW Alps clone type1) with a different case...

It's just smudges in the plastic as far as I can see.

Yup it is. I have one of those with exact case like on your first picture, FCC ID and without "Sunshine" branding. Switch composition is pretty chaotic in my board - unbranded four-tabs, ATW, APC. Looks like they used everything what was in stock that day during assembly :D

Looks like a foam and foil switch. Just from the outside, the whole spring thing, etc.

Hi guys,

Can any of you figure out more details on this thing? Its and early windows keyboard with DIN plug at the receiver, seems kinda interesting although I do not belive it is anything else than a rubber dome keyboard

I see some rubber dome and BTC foam and foil keyboards. I've read on your Reddit post that two have Cherry switches, so for just 40$ it is a very good deal

Well, the winkey ones are all crap, as are the IBM (not an M2) and the Compaq (top left). While the two large boards with the stripes at the top look similar to old Wyse boards, they aren't. They look very saucy, though! The board at the top of the second row also looks interesting. The pen holder groove at the top of the other two winkeyless boards usually makes me think 'Ugh, rubbery Mitsumi things!', but I'm not entirely sure with these ones.

All in all, I wouldn't really expect Cherry switches from any of the boards, but I might still give it a shot for the price, hoping for the odd ALPS board or just for the sake of 'keyboard science' and some variety...
