That's really beautiful! :D

Where do you get these keyboards in the UK? Do you proxy them from Europe or something?
I would love to find a keyboard like this (or ones like Photekq posts), but the ones on eBay UK always seem to be thin walled lasered keycaps.

Very nice, find of the year for me so far.

It's funny, because the alpha section is so busy with all those extra legends and front printed bits it makes the nav cluster/numpad look really bare and boring. They should have front printed the FR icon legends or something to jazz it up a bit :D.

Actually, I'm from the Republic of Ireland, not the North, anyway so I'd have a hard getting anything even if it was as close as the UK. :D

This was an incredibly lucky find on a Polish bidding site. I spend some time in Poland occasionally, so I keep an eye out for nice finds like this.

I'm blushing. :oops: Thank you!

Hahah yeah, that'd be great. :D I love the busy alpha section. The blue side-printing is so beautiful, too. These dyesubs are really spectacular.

Some more for you guys:

(Coincidentally, does anyone know how I can fix that wrong rotation on that last image?)

Guess I will have to use patience and mix in some luck when finding something like this!
And beg your pardon about the UK comment, I just assumed it was Northern Ireland :oops:

Anyways, great pics and fantastic caps. What are you planning to do with them?

Yeah, I've been extraordinarily lucky in this case! Patience helps, as does keeping a bookmark folder with URLs for searches in it. :lol:

Thank you! I'm going to keep one for myself to put a G80 PCB into, and sell the rest to collectors. Photekq has been massively helpful and is putting me in contact with some collectors who are interested in taking them off my hands.

congrats on that Cherry G81-3000SAT scott, top of the line keycaps you got there! That first picture is my favorite.

Thanks seebart! It's an absolute beauty. I'm really happy with it. Even the case feels like rough pumice. The fantastic keycaps make even Cherry MY feel pretty nice! It's sublime, really (no pun intended).

So, there are four?

Nice, better than my last dye-sub batch (4x too but not NIB, and some keys missing)!

Ten. :shock: Scroll up to the previous set of pictures!

What layout were yours? Were you able to cobble together one or two full sets?
