I'm just looking through some ads, as ebay has their 5% ebay bucks thing going, so I might ad a couple more things to this post.

BTC 5100c. $52 (I included the shipping). 80 key. Black case, grey modifier keys. The rest are black. Dunno if it's foam & foil or dome w/slider, but a search on the forum says probably dws. It's supposed to be a very good dws, tho. "Poor man's HHKB."
Which is now mine :P.

Flytech Carry I It's a BTC 5100 with "your mileage may vary" key switches. $65, including shipping. BAE + full sized backspace.

Zenith ZKB-2. One key removed to show yellow Alps. $170 with shipping. Average condition.

Northgate OmniKey Plus. "White switches." $125 with shipping.

Northgate OmniKey 102 Ultra "White switches." $125 with shipping. Looks like the seller's got SEVEN, in addition to these two.

Zenith 163-0092-02-00 Looks brand new. $150. Wiki says SKCL yellow, but also shows an older logo. Might be a good idea to ask the ebayer to pull a keycap.

Neat little yellow alps board.

Went for $83.73. TKL model. I hope someone from here picked that up.

I was trying to, but I wasn't closely watching it and someone outbid me at the last minute =/

Well, that BTC I mentioned might scratch your itch for a keyboard with that form factor (there's also this thing, and I haven't checked for switches, yet). I'm also hoping to get around to working on my Cumulus terminal keyboard this week or next, if you're just interested in yellow Alps.

I found this on a french site: https://www.leboncoin.fr/informatique/1874327914.htm
It's an IBM 5151 Computer. Model: 51510002.
It certainly needs some dusting but for the price, might as well give it for free.

That cannon should have SKFF. Very nice switches and caps. The machine itself is really cool too with a really weird way to move the print wheel (at least on the later ones) that from what I can tell is basically mag-lev to move and detecting changes in inductance in the "mag-lev track" that comes from a series of groves that are etched into the big steel bar. It's why cannon's are so heavy even when compared to other typewriters of similar chassis/size

Pretty rare IBM JX keyboard. It should have green alps.

Unfortunately, the keyboard is sold with the entire computer system. I imagine the shipping from Japan will be crazy expensive, unless you can just ask for them to ship the keyboard

An IBM 5291 for 150€.
Super cool. Someone rescue it. I love the off center design of this terminal model. It's like no other PC/terminal.

If I wasn't in lockdown (and a little bit far), I would've rushed to get it....

Because there is so much variation in the key switches used by NTC, I'd strongly recommend having the seller pull off a key cap to check. If it's just white, make sure to check if it's not a 4 tab clone.

Both Cake & Reimu64's auctions are ended. They don't say "sold," though, so you might want to send 'em a PM through ebay.

Tri-StateSurplus (hopefully a new venture from Dr. Doofenshmirtz) does have a Apple Design Keyboard + an Alps AEK II for sale for $110. Not exactly a deal, tho :(
