I have one of these, the keycaps fit the Alps Electric SKCC switches in my 6112884!
They do?

Man, now I'm tempted. I tried to get the seller to pull a cap to confirm but to no avail.

If the keycaps on that are anything like the ones on my Televideo 925 then that's nice to know. I didn't think the switches were that great but the keycaps are pretty amazing:

If Signature Plastics could make these style of key-caps, I would have a heart attack - TWICE :shock:

They can be TOO thick, I had some caps once where the slot would fit but the interior thickness prevented to key from moving down.

IBM 3278 with German layout... and it looks to be in good shape. 1€ starting point (although with reserve).

https://www.ebay.com/itm/263791722024/

Let's take bets as to how much this one will sell for.

The latest one I've ever spotted in the wild (i.e.: eBay) is from late October 1999.

With a mfg. date of 22-10-1999, this is the second youngest IBM-branded Model M I've ever seen.

There's this German eBay seller (computerprofi2013) that has modern Cherry G80-1800s (w/ lasered caps) for less than €10 each + shipping.

I wonder if this listing is for 10 keyboards:

I'd say that's 38.25€ per board...

The thing is, they have this listing with €45 shipping and then other listings (like this one) with keyboards for ca. €6 + €15 shipping.

The description also says:
Lieferumfang: 10X Cherry Tastatur G80-18xx USB Grau
But perhaps I'm missing something.

not really related, but does anyone know what the black hole on the top of the keyboard is? Seems to be some sort of a black box, using pins to connect to the keyboard controller. Maybe something for POS?

This is how I interpret it it also. Really good deal if someone is in need of a bunch of these things.
