Wow, this is lovely! I'd be all over it hadn't I already spent money this month on a NIB Model F XT, so I've run out of keyboard budget.

GLWS, though!!

Fantastic board. Imo one of best with blues. In this condition i would pay 400$ for it. But it's depending on if those keycaps stretches sliders.

It's a nice offer and i will consider it. What do you want to know about the keycaps?

When and where the auction will be held? The price might be outside my reach but I will like to try anyway.
Also is it really 5161 pcb, or is the pcb 5161A, pcb photos would be nice (having full nkro would be nice).

I wonder why did this go for only 311 dollars, while a month ago there was a NIB Northgate OmniKey “Gold Badge” on eBay, also with SKCM Blues, which went for over 800 dollars.

I remember sending the seller a few messages offering as much as 500 bucks, but he didn’t even care to respond. Oh well... one can only dream of owning such a board.

That's why I add this:

3.- Shipping costs will be calculated after the auction and are on the buyer, the costs shown of international shipping are estimated. Shipping time provided by eBay is an estimation and is not guaranteed.

Actually the buyer is from australia and the shipment from Spain is $100+ lol.

That reminds me how much money I have spent for the shipping after I dropped in the hobby.

Damn....

But not over $200?
Anyway biding was a great ride.
But to be frank after biding I got instant buyers remorse when thinking about the cost, screeched steams and one unit backspace.
The weird thing is that when I checked things out it turned out that I hit the backspace key exactly where the 1 unit key is placed.

I wanted to be outbid, but when I actually got outbid I felt relief mixed with remorse. I wanted to feel how pristine blue alps feel, but having one blue alps in pretty good condition is enough for me, but temptation was strong (since my board have a chip problem and F7 button does not register).

Anyway congrats to the winner!

Enjoy and welcome! And take care of it. It is very rare to have a blue skcm NIB board. I would put it in a cabinet display, sealed from dust.

Nah... will probably just used it as my main driver. XD
