Hi,

Just managed to get this TA QWERTY typewriter and wondering what's it worth?

Thanks

How much are Brown Alps going for? I'm specifically looking for brown alps with a dimpled contact leaf and I don't know if that would make a difference.
average to good condition, about $4 dollars a switch

NOS, who knows

On Ebay I see a person selling them for $5..
Other option is to harvest them from an IBM Convertible...

I guess I couldve made the effort to actually count how many switches are in the magnavox video writer or the IBM 5140 and divided their general going for prices by number of switches. instead I just used a 60% keyboards build base's worth. $4-$5 dollars a switch seems about right. I would harvest them from a 5140. if you buy a magnavox, you may fall into the same trap I did and realize you could never harm such a beautiful board

Yep $4-5 is the current price for such rare switch, my hunting for a 5140 isn't quite a success.
Was planning to swap it for the Fuhua-Alps simplified switches in a MatiasTactile keyboard. Got it for a good deal, 4-5 switches had chatter issues. Think I will combine it with some Alps Orange switches from an Apple keyboard to keep the cost down.

What would be a fair price for this Olympus Fujitsu N860-2500-t111 03a? I really want it but the seller is asking for 100 bucks and that sucks.

Have a NIB black Cherry G81-3000HKNDE, which means a full set of NIB white on black double shot keycaps. How much would that be worth? Thanks!

HKNDE is winkey, right? If so, it's not really a full set since the bottom row has offset stem positions and I'm pretty sure the spacebar has incompatible stabs. I'd say about 40 USD. Maybe someone is willing to pay a bit more for it.

Bugger, I'd quite forgotten about those incompatibilities...
