This came in today. I knew it was going to be a good one.

We are looking at RAFI RS 76 M switches.

The function row caps were originally blue. Now greenish. The LED caps have a plastic top.

This will make a nice addition to my keyboard display shelf. I think this is one of the more unusual keyboards in my collection.

Ah yes it's upside down in a special way! :D Of course I did that on purpose as a test!

Thanks zts. Like I said it's an interesting one. I don't think it will turn into one of my daily drivers. The switch feels "strange" to me right now. Coming from my XT this feels almost "bouncy".

It looked shinier in the Ebay auction, nice to see it's in better shape than I though. :)

Some caps have some shine. The dental function row seems to have had heavy usage.

I reckon, this would be diagnosed as an occlusolingual discoloration. :D

These are mechanical switches (RS 76 M) - the metal leaves are clearly visible. IIRC, pink salmon sliders denote mechanical switches equipped with diodes. (Earlier versions of them had red, not rosy sliders.) The yellow ones also have diodes, but their springs are about 50% stronger.

Thank you for that info. Yes the yellow ones are "heavier".
