After searching for many months, I finally found one on a local auction site.

Looks like barely used or you did a great cleanup job. Very nice, indeed!

Edit: Are these MX white or clears? Looks like the clears but can't say for sure.

Those are ML switches.

Looks like MX to me, but I could be wrong. I think I have one KB with ML and they look different than these.

I think BlueBar means MY. They're MY for sure.

Yep, you are right they are MY. Often I have hard time recognizing switches I've never used.

Those are odd. Same design as the old, black MY switches.. But white? First time I've seen any like that :?

Did you want this for the switches or the keys?

Ugh, MLs are bad. I just took mine out a couple of hours ago. Why would anyone want to use a switch that's only tactile on the upstroke? :(

They are in fact old MY switches, which are not nearly as dreadful as the newer ones.
And like photekq, I've never seen white ones before.

For the keys but the switches look and feel quite intersting. They don´t feel like normal MY switches.

Yes, what I call gen2 MY switch. They used to have both black and white, which had different weight. I don't remember which is the heavier one. There is also the oldest ones (at least I think they are?) that had an even less frictiony slider that is like this

Which are also found on the TA/Royal/etc branded of these kinds of typewriter models. I don't recall ever finding them in a G81, but perhaps there are on some of the oldest ones that may be floating around out there.
Both the older kinds are much better, and feel more similar to blacks. It's too bad Cherry changed them to be so terrible feeling on the current version of them.
