You need some salmon Alps switches? You don't mind unsoldering them? You want some Alps-mount keycaps to go with them? You want to pay $11 for 63 (I'm pretty sure it's 63) keyswitches and caps? Here's your auction. Free slow shipping, too.

Note that, while I was online actually ordering a bunch of these sets, someone gave the ebayer a negative review. That dropped his percentage to 97.8% on 87 sales.

Pretty despicable
Agreed, very similar to those sellers who sell boxes from game consoles for $300 only mentioning it's just a box for two words in the title. *Technically* they're not doing anything wrong but like...c'mon.

Very obvious this seller is hoping someone will buy it thinking it's a keyboard.
I guess I don't see the issue here. Everything seems accurately described in the listing and the price is within reason for the described item. It's not likely you would find the keyboard for $11.
I just cherry (heh) picked a couple quotes (there are several more; I'm just summarizing) from earlier in the thread and wanted to tell you that, after a bit of back-and-forth, the seller did refund me.

Do note that the ad is still active and that the item is still listed as sold to me.

I can remember when one of these was listed for $60 and it took a long time to sell. I picked up a pristine example for $50-60 from a surplus vendor and of course it's been forever so now I don't remember where I got it exactly :(

Model M blue badge with affixed cable. $35

Cable is frayed and some keycaps are missing but if anyone wants to try buckling springs or needs parts you could likely get a pretty good deal with the best offer option

510$ from 1$ after 8hs since the auction began, wonder how much it will go at the end.

Judging by the condition of the barrel plate, back plate and back pan, it will go for a considerable amount. The only defect on it seems to be dirt, which will come off. I would wager it would sell for around $1500
