Interestingly the switches on that board seem to have 3 pins instead of the usual 4

Cheapest Dasher I've seen in a while. $550 BIN. Includes the terminal.

Another black/grey BTC5100C. Now that I have one, I can recommend them. Tactile. Dome over slider. Pretty good price: $28 + shipping based on your location. Make sure it's not a 6 pin DIN.

MY-8300 worth a check.
That is an interesting specimen. The inconsistent yellowing and varying styles of the mods is bizarre.

EDIT: I noticed that there was one switch pictured in the ad and it's labeled, "Micro USA." I'm relatively sure that these are Micro Switch SW/SD Hall Effect switches. (If I'm wrong, someone will be along momentarily to point that out :))

There's another Atex keyboard listed on this forum and it has Digitran Capacitive Leaf switches.

"Never Used" IBM 3275/3277 Beam Spring. Currently 500 pounds sterling. 50 pounds for shipping. That's about $670 US and $67 shipping.

It'll be interesting to see how much this sells for. Ends in a week. Only 7 bids so far.

Don't waste money to bid too high lol. The original listing was the whole set with monitor, only a bit over 100usd.

Interesting listings, but it is the external case is the single limiting component for the SSK.

Looks like it doesn't even have a pcb

And both barrel plates are cracked. At this point you might be better off just chopping a regular M barrel plate.
The keycaps should be worth something though.

They look like if they were rescued from the deepest dungeons of Computer Reset. Hey! even the seller is in Texas! Maybe...

150$ should be high enough, glad to see someone will take it.
