Cherry M9 switches

Nobody bought my Cherry M9 keyboard unit and today it fell on the ground AGAIN and the V key broke off and the stem got stuck in the keycap, so I decided to salvage what's salvageable and desolder the switches with a soldering iron and toothpicks. These are the ones I desoldered so far.
Also, Haha! Now I can take pictures just as nice as you fancypants thanks to my new bankers lamp!

An ultra scientific demonstration! Just like Chyrosran22 but without the voice! (because I have that typical kind of deep but not really great puberty voice because of obvious reasons)

Bon appetite!

Well, shit, the pictures on the Wiki kinda looked like M7 so I thought that they were the one.

Well, I'm happy to buy some switches off you, as I only have two M9 types. I've let UncleFan know too as he'll be interested.

What keyboard were these in? M9 is not well documented.

I'll have to see if these are the same keystem as my existing tall black M9 switches, or a different mount.

These switches were in an Adler Gabrielle 8008 typewriter. I will desolder some more today and then we'll see.

I realise that you may wish to sell the keycaps as a complete set (although they're more likely to fit a Commodore 64 than anything) but if you're intending to split those up, it would be useful to have a couple just for the purposes of mount testing. (I keep a box of keycaps for mount compatibility checks.)
