I am honestly not sure if I have these from a groupbuy or desoldered them from an old board. Anyway, you can have them for shipping + best offer, which can totally be 0 because they only gather dust here. :)

I’ll give you 5 euros for these, that’s 1cent more than the cost of shipping these to me in Germany...

Retooled how? I guess I don't know keyboard jargon anymore. ;)

There, fixed the wrong quote. x)

Cherry made new tools at some point and switches manufactured after are known as "retooled".
AFAIK the difference can be determined when comparing the stem: https://imgur.com/0hCXwps

Retooled switches are said to be smoother.

Okay, I'm not sure where the humps are supposed to be. Here are some close-ups!
Oh..wait...yes, these are old ones! If I am looking at this correctly. ;)

And, looking at them closely, they are apparently desoldered from some board.

Hey there - are these still available?

Whether they've been snapped up, or not - it's very generous of you to offer them out like this.
