Quite a nice set! Too bad about there being no homing keys. How are the Hirose Clears in there?
They are so nice! Extremely smooth, a nice sound to boot because of the stem. Feels very comfortable to type on too because of the light progressive springs. They're awesome.

Why I don't need a Realforce R2 :P

I think (all thanks to @ball00n haha) that this is actually HAGU0. Which makes the list of ESA keyboards : HAGD0, HASR0 and HAGU0.

I think the most interesting part is that it's HAGU0 ... ESA boards are weird :?

The problem with having lots of keycaps is that you never have enough.

I'm doing the dual task of reorganizing/re-matching incomplete sets and looking for some candidates for my custom. I'll be posting some close up photos of some of the more interesting keycaps in my modest arsenal.

Here's my Alps keycap 12 course meal / sampler platter.

#1 - White on gray doubleshots
This is a really cool set from what I presume was a typewriter or word processor. Some of the keycaps have front-printed blue sub legends.
Image
ImageImage

#2 - The out-of-towner
These caps are actually from an Alps buckling spring keyboard that was the center of my frustration for several months. I think they're a really good example of pad printing done well. The legends and the profile are a bit bland for me, though.
Image
ImageImage

#3 - White on gray pad prints
This is a pretty high quality set which is also pad printed pretty well. The keycaps are decently thick and feel like PBT to me, but I could be wrong about that.
Image
ImageImage

#4 - Blue on gray doubleshots
These are also from a typewriter. If the profile was a little bit taller, I'd really like these.
Image
ImageImage

#5 - Fun caps
This set is from some sort of video editing machine. The colors are really cool and there are even a few more colors to the set (but I'm too lazy to grab the board those are on).
Image
ImageImage

#6 - (not so) Fun caps
Now this is my example of really bad pad printing. I can appreciate the thickness of the caps themselves but the printing on them is unforgivable :(
Image
ImageImage

#7 - (even less so) Fun caps
And here is probably the worst set I own. These feel so cheap, it's difficult to describe. Any attempt at a description falls shortof how terrible these are.
Image
ImageImage

#8 - The Chameleon
This set I included because I love the color. They look good with almost anything!
Image
ImageImage


#9 - Xerox Docutech
These are really cool and have some fun legends on some of the keycaps. All of them are dyesub except for the "STOP" key which is doubleshot in a cool orange color. That keycap looks amazing up close but unfortunately the color combination doesn't translate very well at a distance.
Image
ImageImage
ImageImage

#10 - Sculpted and boxy
This is another typewriter set. I used the alphas on a keyboard with SKCM undampened creams and they feel amazing. Lots of funky shapes and some of the keycaps are flat, which I found interesting. Seems like whatever these came on was probably an expensive item at the time.
Image
ImageImage
ImageImage

#11 - See through
These are from an old Matias board that I got as my secret santa gift. I'd never seen see-through alps keycaps, nor had I ever seen SKBM switches!
Image
ImageImage

#12 - NExT
Finally, caps from a NExT keyboard. There aren't many white on black Alps keycaps and these are certainly a nice specimen. I don't care for some of the funky symbols like the "power" keycap but perhaps someone out there likes those. Unfortunately, I have the majority of this set out on loan to someone trying to design a kit for a group buy. Hope to get them back soon and put them to good use!

I love seeing HiPro keycaps on HHKBs.

IBM 3278 and 5251 boards. Out of these I find myself using the full size 3278 the most (basically a tkl after adjusting the layout).

Always wonderful to see those next to each other. I also have my full size 3278 as my primary keyboard, but modified it so it also has a num-pad available. Initially I thought, I could never get into a block-nav, but over time I started to like it more and more. A lot of it is probably just how you are used to a specific layout ;)
