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.

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.

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.

A lot. I think easily more than $1,000 for a good condition OG one would be my guess in the current market. What will be interesting to see is if the value of them drops off after the ellipse f62/f77 project orders are fulfilled.

An unsaver went for $2,500 a year ago.

I would say a kishsaver would go for $5,000 in a massive bid war but that is just a hunch.

The last set of amber alps sold on mm for around $600. I bet it’s above that now given none have been spotted in a very long time.

What do yo think about G81-3100SBU?
Is there any at all?
Not entirely relevant to this thread, but I figure it does more good than harm posting here.

I purchased all three of Marko's SBUs on the 31st of May. Since then, I haven't heard back from him once. Throughout the whole buying process he tried his best to make me pay with Skrill, which has no chargebacks.

I've just learned that he's been trying to sell more SBUs to other people, and has successfully sold at least one board. He's told the other buyer that he doesn't have money to ship his keyboard. Seems like a clear trend of overselling and lack of response.

Please, don't buy anything off this guy. If you've already bought something: get ready to do a chargeback if you don't hear anything from him soon.

I plan on selling mine for around $100, I think its a good price point. Maybe $120 for one that has been cleaned so thoroughly.

Okay. Maybe a little more than zero then. You did clean it up a bit.

I'd say $120. Those are cool but at the same time the layout makes it about as usable as an XT.
