User diseeease has vouched to collect the lot. Thank you for all the PMs.

Giving away the boards I suspect I will always be too lazy to sell separately but that I feel are still too valuable to take to the recycler. The majority of these are mechanical, but don't expect to find any particular jewels among them as I would keep any I would consider such myself or (hopefully) sell them separately in future.

The entire lot is available for collection / pickup at my house only, take all or nothing. Please PM if you're interested and can be bothered to drive to Kassel for these. You can just grab the boxes and leave, but a coffee and chat are free, too. :lol:
no longer available: Having said that if anyone wants to pay 20€ plus shipping for any single board or 15€ each plus shipping for two or more boards, feel free to PM. The offer to buy individual boards and have them sent will only be open until January 7th though I doubt there will be much demand. After that any person picking up the lot will be guaranteed ownership of any boards still listed as available in this post.
I hope nobody objects to my not having included timestamps in the photos in this case. If anyone does, I can remove the offer to buy individual boards and go with free giveaway / pickup only. If anyone still objects, I hope something heavy will fall onto their tiny toe.

As a bonus, you have the option of picking up the box of Cherry offal (bottommost pic): none of these still have keycaps, some G81s are still intact otherwise. The G80s in there have had their sliders and springs removed. Some cases are still pretty decent (two 1000s, I think, the others are 3000s).

So here goes:
