Are they definitely not the black MY variant?

It also has a light grey switch under the spacebar. As long as MY switches don't look the exact same as MX switches I'm pretty sure. :)

That looks like the Kishsaver's older brother. Nice. That will go for a pretty penny.

Correct. It is the largest member of the Kishsaver's little family:

Should be an excellent board! Probably works quite nicely with Xwhatsit's Model F controller, too.

The missing F-row makes it seem so looooong and unproportional, but I like it. And yeah, it's the bigger brother of the kishsaver: http://kishy.ca/?attachment_id=852

Last time I checked USPS for a package of that size from the US to Europe it was something like $80 ... :shock:

It reminds me of this NBI terminal keyboard:

Wow. Love the block of 1.25 keys!

I've wikified it: [wiki]NBI 4000[/wiki]

No idea who NBI are or whether 4000 is the model of the terminal, protocol, plug, or keyboard.

Whatever it is, I find it attractive, despite the fact that it probably promotes "mouse shoulder".

Yeah, even if I hate big keyboards I find it really lovely, it's a very interesting keyboard! Also the photos are pretty nice, if they only were a bit bigger resolution...

The 107-key is the best of the 4704 keyboards by far. When I saw this on ebay, I was sad because I knew it'd get posted: This is the one keyboard (that currently exists) that I want the most.

The good news is the seller is a really nice guy to talk to and is almost certainly a community member. I wonder who they are?

I think the most amazing part is that he actually found one somewhere, especially after all the searching on my part (and others).

Kishy has very large resolution originals that were on his 'site until he had to move from dyndns. If you really want you can ask him for them.

we never get cool stuff like that on ebay.co.uk. Is that a real model F 122key or a early model M 122k i cannot tell without looking at the back of it.

Yeah, risky, but nice boards ...

I'm not 100% sure, but with the hat caps on Alt and "Grdst" I would tend towards thinking it could in fact be a Model F. I'm sure the seller will answer that, I just asked.

I'd like an F-122 somehow, but I'm probably not the only one, and the BIN price looks way too high to me.

They do indeed look like 5 Model Fs to me. The one in the middle has a nice enough layout:

My wallet sighs in relief that the beam spring you sent me is already en route, and didn't wind up joined by one of these!

Looks very interesting, but I can't find any info on it anywhere. What do you guys think? Mechanical?

I won the action for this keyboard for 3 euros, and it turned out to have futaba clicky switches. I made a post about it here.

I asked the seller, and he sent me a picture of the bottom sticker of the 122 keyboard. I would draw the ire of the gods of copyright on me if I posted it, but it shows that it's a model 1389278, made on 1989-08-11. The typical Model M sticker on a beige plastic surface. :(
