That is an M13 with the pointstick, stem is there but the red tip is missing. Mouse switches below the spacebar also and two PS/2 connectors.

I think all black M13's (at least the ones with black keycaps) were made by Maxiswitch in Mexico in the late 90's IIRC. It's too bad the legends are pad printed, but I believe they hold up fairly well for what they are.

I believe this is a Data General of some sort. I bought a very similar looking keyboard a few months ago. Mine has switches that look like Fujitsu Leaf Spring but feel and sound like a clickier version of Alps Plate Spring.

Ah, OK. The difference between the Data General and my Fujitsu FM Towns board (4th gen FLS?) was so stark I thought the Data General might be something other than FLS. The FM Towns board has a very weak click, but the Data General has a great click.

Thanks for the clarification!

That's already super expensive. You might wanna be patient and look for a full system in your country instead. At least in the UK and Germany they exist. They are not cheap but similar priced to this keyboard after import.

Yuop, that's what I'm doing, waiting for a guy who has one in europe to actually just sell the keyboard and give me a decent price, but he wants to try and sell the whole system first.

It's kinda sad to see a system without a keyboard so I can understand him. There is a reason why deskthority users are hated in the vintage computer community.

There is a dolch pac keyboard on taobao for 980¥. Not much cheaper with the import tax but atleast you wouldnt have to seperate a system and its keyboard.

Hello all here are my recent finds. If someone could give me a quick price check it would be great!

Here are 3 model f at’s that are in the mail right now

And a set of blue Selectric I keycaps also in the mail
https://imgur.com/gallery/6LNiItU

I’d really be grateful for a price on these blue caps. I’ve been told that they’re really rare but can’t seem to find an accurate price.

This is the wrong thread to ask how much your itema are worth, but certainly those are some very interesting finds indeed!

Those F AT's were a steal. Also you are the person I pm'd on Reddit :)

If you contacted VaperFrogg on Reddit that’s me! Anyways I guess that there isn’t many people that have 3 at’s in the mail right now!

I recently picked one of these up that says Exacom 2000 on the front and CompuPhone 2000 on the back. It has pretty meh domes with slider. The caps are thin-ish Alps mount, but I think they're dyesub. I'm not a cap expert, but they're definitely not doubleshot and I'm pretty sure they're not pad printed or lasered. It's a cool keyboard, but I wish the domes were better.

Sorry, no STBs — boards with that keycap style have rubber domes.
