Hello all. I see that JP! has one of these as well. Wanted to share my pics from my latest local purchase.

From 1972 or 1973, likely the oldest in my collection. Not too many made that are older than this right? Please chime in with things that are older than this. I'd love to see the list.

Has the same foam dissintigration problem as JP!s had

Hilarious switches and knobs for parity and speed

Beautiful spherical doubleshot keycaps

Key Tronic Magnetic Reed switches

and a crazy key with translucent top with a fixed bulb beneath and hollow switch stem that moves up and down

Nice find! Besides the keys I like how smooth these switches are. I think this is the oldest in my collection as well. I had a couple opportunities to acquire a board from the late 60's but of course there are older yet...
