I know these are hard to come by and are super inflated on ebay, but I'm really hoping to fetch a good condition 122-key Model F for under $350? Idk if that's super unreasonable or not.

I have one coming in, sometime in the near future. We have agreed on prices, but they have not shipped yet.

Are you trying to sell it right away?

You're in luck, she's selling some for $299 including shipping. From the outside, they look pristine.

This one is going for 275 - seems you'll just need to get one cap.

I wanted to get this one but the import / shipping cost are insane.

How is she (guessing elecplus = electronicoyote?) able to ship for such a cheap price.. and ebay is not mentioning any import costs??

No, elecplus is "Cindy" in Texas and the "electronic coyote" is a small computer seller in Georgia.

Contact the seller and verify the details. The USPS international flat rate game board box costs about $80 to anywhere, but no idea what your particular country charges when it gets there.

I would never ship an F122 in a flat rate game box. Too heavy! But then again, I have been told I pack things very well.

Here is a Model F122 in need of serious repair and restoration work it is $199 which is a bit much but you could message the seller with your offer it has been up on eBay for quite a long time so he might be generous with the price.

He is a member here and might cut you a better deal off ebay.

Too bad about the broken case, but there may be some replacements around after the giant parts party surrounding lot_lizard's project a few years ago.

Can't you retrofit a first gen M122 case onto it? Or am I mistaken?

It takes some Dremel work at the minimum, I don't think that is more than a few small places.
I can't remember whether you re-use that "spline" piece.
