PS: Ok maybe I could still change my mind if and when I'd be able to test blue alps!! :)
And here it is:

Nice Duck sign. But I made a rule for myself not to collect such paraphernalia. And it's too expensive for what it is.

Your wrong, quite wrong. But that's OK.

Lol its my daily driver :)
Right, my man! The way to go. :maverick:
The build quality, awesome caps, great switches and a very cool look make it a great daily 8-)
emdude wrote: Well, by that logic, then Mattr's board isn't that interesting, because he messed with it by swapping out the switches for SKCM Oranges! To be fair, white damped alps aren't that great. But I totally get people who want to use an unmodified board though.
And SKCL Green's for the lock light key's! I had some left over from my V60 swap. Damp Alps are alright, but not great. SKCM Orange is a amazing switch, highly underrated. Mine are also the early grey plate. The reason I didnt just get a AEK is b/c I hate how Apple moved the dimple to D/K.

Yes it does, the overall build quality is better like the old Dell AT. It's like a better Dell AT, better looking too.

Here's one of mine:

These have already been up for quite a while and have been listed here before. Funny that the one with German caps has English labels on the case and vice versa. Both have Siemens STB 21 switches with double-shot caps.

Do you mean stock poker or stock Pok3r caps? I always thought the Vortex PBT set was the same as the one that came on the Pok3r, and I really see nothing wrong with it, great quality especially for stock caps.
It seems we really judge differently then!

No, but that's a great price on a keyboard we already know very well. The other one is unknown.

Jeez, I didn't know they still made industrials as late as 1997 Oo . Still has the black oval badge though, did industrials ever come with anything but the square and oval black badges?

PGA S01011, can't find anything about this board, unless someone can identify it i might buy it
http://www.ebay.de/itm/DIN-Tastatur-fur ... 1940190570

That old yellowed CSK-2101 board again
http://www.ebay.de/itm/282033320109

Also small update on that 'brown' AEK II, turns out the seller just had some really strange lighting, the case is pretty yellowed, but not in a brown-ish tone, not sure if i'll retr0bright it or not
http://www.ebay.de/itm/Mechanische-Tast ... 2103984624

EDIT: Might as well put this out there since it hasn't been identified yet (AFAIK) but some things that might be useful ID-ing the switch type at least, notice the small triangular logo on the box of picture 2 and 5, also note the offset circular LED cutouts. Not sure about F and J but the only key i can confirm to have a homing bar is the numpad 5

I didn't either, I've seen many Lexmark and Maxi Switch industrials from 1992-1995. The label style's a bit different from any other Industrial I've seen, too.

Some of the really early ones came with silver square badges ;) https://imgur.com/2DKwmi8

EDIT: '87 SSK for 169 OBO http://www.ebay.com/itm/201582631639

Given the FTxx text on the back, this SGI board is almost certainly foam and foil by Key Tronic. The font agrees with this hypothesis as well.

I believe you, too bad SGI did not use NMB HI-TEK. I had my hopes up.
