Is there still any interest in Aristotles, or has the hype moved elsewhere? I have about 100 Aristotle stems (a) harvested, (b) in a nasty vintage keyboard.

Couple of IBM 122s, part numbers 6110668(9Aug84) & 1394100(22Jan92).

The 6110668 Model F keyboard should go for quite a bit, probably up to 300$. The 1394100 Model M boards are not really sought. You are probably looking for 30-40$ for it.

The 611668s are probably worth at least $300, unless they are trashed or incomplete. That market is crazy.

The M-122 is probably worth less than a standard M.

Quite rightly! I’ve got one. Not a fan.

A friend found this with some old computers, it looks like an Alps Bigfoot and has white coloured switches, but they're not white alps because they aren't clicky; alps cream maybe?

wtf, I found one of these in early 2018, also with SKCM Cream Alps, it was ISO and I supposed that these would come like all AT101s, with an ANSI layout, but this is BAE, this is an awesome find !

I have no idea what it's worth, the board isn't worth much but the switches are worth quite a bit (something like 3usd per switch), if you decide to sell the switches, I'll be interested in the chassis

An Alps Bigfoot! Noice, they're good boards! That said, although it's difficult to see on the picture, they look more like salmon than cream to me :) .

FInally got my hands on one of those, magnificent caps, magnificent switches, magnificent case, what else could I possibly want ? :P
As you can see, those are Creams and they look exactly the same.

Thanks for the answers, but are the switches really that expensive? I recall seeing them on AEKs and those went for 50 to 70 dollars a piece.

AEK should have dampened cream alps switches while these ones are undampened. That's what causes the price difference

It's got to be worth $125-$150

Correct, it should be around $300+ (DT) depending upon the customer (desperate to pay more) ;) .

Of course double/triple it on Flebay.

hmmm, I actually doubt my previous statement, these might not be SKCM Cream, they do look very pink-ish compared to the ones I have. Not sure if it's the photo or if it's actually that they are SKCM Salmon.

SKCM Cream is almost white. It actually has very little colour. If it has any red in it, I very much think it's salmon (which also makes sense for an Alps AT101).

Although I agree, kind of with your claim of them being salmons, I don't agree with the fact that it makes sense for an AT101 to have Salmons, as far as I know AT101 were the go to Alps chassis, so much so that almost any switch type can be seen on them (even linears, see here : http://www5f.biglobe.ne.jp/~silencium/k ... ml/ax.html), so while I do think they can be salmons, I don't know about the fact that it was obvious. Even more so when I have the same model, the KBU-1971, with SKCM Cream and the only other model that comes close to it is the KBU-1371 and this one is SKCM Black. Maybe KBU-1671 is SKCM Salmons :lol:

They are actually not pinky at all, they look almost exactly like Alps SKCM white, which confused me at first because they weren't clicky. It's just that my phone camera REALLY likes to make colors warmer than they really are, especially after it does postprocessing.

yeah as I originally thought, these are indeed SKCM Cream, for sure. My original price for them still stands then. (And my proposition of getting the chassis if you were to desolder it too :lol:) I really want the chassis to complete my Bull collection a bit more :D

How much IBM Model M 35G4746 from 90's is worth (polish version of IBM Model M 1395665)?
They come with RJ45, two pieces key caps with terminal layout (with some polish characters).

User avatar

maybe 45euro ?

Even without LEDs (lock lights) and with Polish font, keyboard is worth 45 euros? It is quite surprising, I was under the impression that terminal (young) ibm model m fetched about 30 euros at max.

Model Ms seem to be quite sought after in Europe. I think you could even get maybe 60€ if you were to convert it.

Anyone got a good idea of what a complete ibm 5140 is worth? In fairly nice condition and powers on.
