Hey,
time to free some space for new acquisitions :)

Currently nothing :)


Sold things:
Spoiler:
Cadam Alps keypad, green alps with LEDs, DSA-style keycaps
Image

Sun MCS 2000 Cherry case, decent condition, damage on the left side and below the numpad, tape residue on many spots.
Image

Rohde & Schwarz keyboard, Cherry mx blacks and doubleshot keycaps, board itself most likely not made by Cherry
Image

G80-0414:
The board doesn't work with soarer's convertor nor with the wyse ascii converter. The red leds power up but no keys are registered on windows. The keyboarsd should have Ascii protocol but I couldn't find a converter yet so I can't test if the board is working or not.

This is the board which is for sale here. The case is a bit yellowed, the caps are fine in that regard. There are some white markings on the front of F3 and F4, I guess there were stickers installed on those caps. There is a slight damage on the front of the case.

The G80-0418:
This board was probably build for the Apple iie, it's untested and probably unused. According to the chinese community this board was part of the second batch of Cherry MX boards. In 1983 Cherry announced the first two MX keyboards, in 1984 the next two models, one of them is this. As the apple iie has an integrated keyboard, I don't expect too many of these to be build. The board has no mx gray switch, it has a heavy black space bar switch. I guess this board was build before the mx gray was announced. Component date codes are in mid 1983 so I expect this board to be built in late 1983/1984. This board has rare brown abs caps.

G80-2100 HAO swedish prototype:
I'm only using my normal 2100 and this board just sits in the drawer and doesn't give me joy :cry: That's why I decided to let it go.
Super rare first generation G80-2100 prototype. Features the first case design which is mainly known from the G80-2000. Very good condition, keycaps are pristine. Keycaps are swedish doubleshots with english sublegends (super rare). Only 2100 with swedish caps and the only prototype known of this board as far as I know.

NOS Cherry Numpad sets, DSA-style caps, mx compatible, glued onto the cardboard (took few caps off and it worked fine when being careful), these sets are very old and were stored in a sealed bag, they can have small damages due to storage, several available.
Price: 18€ + shipping
Image

GMK Dolch TKL set, bought it used but got a German Dolch set in the meantime, some shine, especially on WASD keys, seems to be an old originative set but I'm not sure about its origin
Price: 70€ + shipping
Image

Mech 27, built with modern MX blacks and 60g kbdfans springs, switches feel pretty decent, ansi layout with clipped cherry stabs, some marks on the case but I'd say decent condition (most 27 boards were delivered with defects), built with a leeku pcb (not the original pcb), some screws were replaced by previous owners
Price: 245€ + shipping and fees, keycaps not included

I was thinking about around 500€ for the board. Ideally some Swedish collector buys it cause parting the board and the caps feels a bit bad :?

I'm always open for trades, just offer me things that are more usable than these boards :D
I used to have a French one with this case some 25 years ago, which sadly burglars stole together with all my IT equipment.
My insurance paid for a new one, but it was the model with the new case.
As much as I would love to buy this one to extend my 2100 collection, I now have zero keyboard budget
and probably not much which I would consider giving away (or hansichen would consider taking :lol: ) for a trade.

So I wish you good luck with your sale. This is an amazing piece of keyboard history, and a unique one at that.

The spacebar of g80-0418 seems that using a MX heavy black. It's interesting. Can you tell me what switch 0414 using?

MX Black with a MX linear Grey on the spacebar

The 0414 is using the normal MX linear gray switch for the space bar. The 0418 heavy black space bar switch is between mx linear gray and a super black switch.

Thanks. The keypad is pretty cool, it has two pcbs inside and has a total weight of 1,25kg. It's really sturdy and well built. You can probably make a good internal conversion and then have a nice macropad. You could probably even fit a raspberry pi inside :D
