I bought the PCB with plate, switches and caps from a Canon AP 830 typewriter today, expecting them to be Alps. Imagine my surprise when I discovered the keys to be white SMK inverse cross mount switches ...

Switches are nice, but I don't really have a use for them. Do you think they'd be worth anything to anybody? Custom switches (stems) needing custom caps, there'd be 80 ABS doubleshot keys, sculptured, spherical (ISO-DE, unfortunately, of the old school typerwriter variant) and stabs to go with them.

How much would a IBM 3277 Microswitch be worth?

They seem to follow they beamspring brethren into 4 digit territory :(

On the other hand, to give some (crude) sort of upper bound, just the assembly without case has not been selling for 950$ for quite some time now:

Yours is so cool, with its triple-shots, good luck if you want to sell it :)

The latter isn't selling because it isn't beamspring. It's a Micro Switch.

Hits too close to home... well, apart from that I never actually bought any synths because I spend my money on keyboards :?

How much would a heavily yellowed, fairly dirty and engraved Apple M0115 (orange alps; UK layout) be worth?

For what it's worth, I'd restore it and possibly retrobrite the case if it'd increase its value but I guess people are more interested in the switches. Thanks.

I have mine for all day use (orange switches). I prefer the keyfeel to anything new on the market at the moment. It can easily be converted to USB with an eg. pro micro and the layout has only minor drawbacks. If I was looking for a decent board for typing and I only can choose between a new - let's say G80-3000 and this AEK i'll take yours - for the same price - just my two cents.
