Hi,
I have got one piece of Accesss ATB keyboard. Very nice piece.
It has MX switches, according technical manual, they should be MX gold. But I am not sure, they are just black.
They are no clicky, without sound.

And there is also nice keycaps set - black caps with white legends, double shotted. But I don't know, if the caps are made by Cherry or not. Manufacturing date is about 2014.

Can you help me identify it?
Thanks

It probably means "Gold Crosspoint", which is a term applicable to all MX switches. There is no MX Gold switch.

I concur with that HC514 said, I'll add that the keycaps are not made by Cherry, they are the DCS profile from Signature Plastic

Probably, I will have in the future several of these black sets - now Signature Plastic :-), for the sale.
