[WTB/WTT] IBM Beamspring 3278 A02 or 3279

Here we go for the long shot.

Looking for my ultimate unicorn, the Beamspring 3278 Model A02 or 3279 as shown below.

Don’t really mind between a German or US version, unrestored is fine for me, will not be picky on the condition, only on internal condition.

Wanna consider a PayPal but can also put some part of my collection to make the right deal.


- Model M Indy SSK (Mopar) clean not modded yet (Have the OG Plastic cover and OG MDS cover)
- Model M SSK (non modded, pristine condition)
- Model M 101 Indy (Oval badge) with nice blue sublegend keys (non modded) (also have a NOS 101 Indy case)
- Beamspring 5251 French Azerty Layout unrestored (yet) but clean and rust free
- Full blue key set from a Selectric I : complete with knobs etc. Super duper clean set (removes from an actual Selectric by a former IBM engineer)

Thank you for reading me so far

Stay safe

Don’t worry, mine would have do a barrel roll too ^.^

Maybe there is one out there who knows ?

Thank you :) ideally I rather buy it but thought that someone could be interested in a trade :)
