Is it just me or is the logo way off vertical center?

Not much wiggle room for the gold label, maybe a trick of the lighting? What bothers me more is the "ATT 6300" hand written on the back. Those computers were built by Olivetti and used a special keyboard with a 9 pin D-sub. The Gen 2&3 Northgates had dipswitch support for the 6300; more than just a pin adapter for the cable.

edit: a bit of reading suggests that the ATT 6300 keyboard ran on 12 volts, so perhaps this was internally modified (added 5 volt reg) to work on that machine? (...or plugged into 12 volts and burnt up inside?) It would also need a pin adapter, and if I remember correctly the 6300 was only partially BIOS-compatible with the XT. "For parts" is probably for a good reason.

Possibly blue Alps, but shipping is too expensive for me.

I've never in my life seen an HHKB that yellowed, and I own a very yellowed one!

Check this out: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/124021219427

It must have sat on a sunny windowpane the entire time.

No clue about the keyboard, but that Hirschmann MES 160 is an unusual choice.

That plug looks like something you'd attach to a flail.

Well, you must occasionally view the garden at certain times of the day when you type :D .

I don't blame anyone for leaving their keyboard in the sun it's our Star, that delivers Life on this planet.

I use a similar one of those to compliment my 60% Alps keyboard. It uses integrated Alps domes.

I think "Condition: New" may be an exaggeration.

And given it doesn't even have its original keycaps on, its not worth more than 100.

Although I am rather agnostic about purity and keycaps, I will say that the Model M function keys with alternating colors look lame and that Wheelwriter typewriter keys are particularly well-made and good-feeling.

Even though these are rarer now, paying more than $200 for one feels excessive. Especially one with modifications that might not be preferred by many.

Definitely true, considering most of them come from the USA. So what migth have looked like a fair bargain to my eyes, then turned into a bad dream with custom fees and shipping costs to EU that practically doubled my expenses. (250$x2)... Never regret though. F is F and 122 includes all of them.
