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.

How much would a DigiPos MID-AM-KM096A be worth? I currently have 5 (made between 2002-2005) which I am cleaning up. They all have plate mounted MX blacks (not vintage) and relegendable keycaps.

What would dyesub or double-shot caps from a g80-3000 be worth and is there a good place to get something like that? I currently use dyesubs from a g81-1000 but alas the modifiers and spacebar, as well as the capslock don't fit because of stems and width.

Well, I currently use an MX Board 3.0 with MX Blues and I really dislike the low profile caps that came with it, so I replaced what I could with dyesubs from an old winkeyless one (used doubleshots with led cutout for num and scroll lock. Capslock sadly doesn't fit as the stem is just a tad out of the way..). Those winkeyless ones obviously have the larger spacebar and larger alt and control keys..also no win or menu keys. I'm looking for caps like from Chyrosans G80-3000 HFMGB review. :)

I would be happy to take those dyesubs off of your hands. :D

Is that a Belgian/French AZERTY? then the interest ins not that great for them as they are mostly searched for in french speaking territories.

The keyboard itself, as it is is a G81, is not that valuable because it has membrane switches (G80 has mechanical switches)
The keycaps might be a bit valuable, but it really depends on the price. I sold an AZERTY set some time ago for 70Eur, but it was in very good condition.

No it is US ANSI and it is probably first day of production becouse serial number is below 00000010, brand new, never used and in a mint condition with user manual and warranty paper. I am asking is there any piece of this model some where in the world, becouse i cant find this article number.

Woa man, cant tell if those are dyesubs or not (leaning towards doubleshots), but even if they are doubleshot...ANSI is usually worth a fair bit in this day and age. Nice find!

S in SBU stands for dye sub

I asked cherry directly for more info about this model, and i will post here what they will answer.
I still cant find nothing besides this:

G81-3100SBU
G81- FTSC
3100-Model number
S-DYE Sublimation
B-MX Brown, PS/2
U- US ANSI

Correct me if im wrong..

You are wrong, G81 isn't mechanical, so it can't be Cherry MX Brown

Makoohr

I dont know, maybe was test production with mechanical? What that B than mean? 🤔☺️

Take a keycap off

See for yourself, it's not mechanical

For the B, refer to what ball00n said, it should be said in the manual

Ok i will post the photo of manual as soon as i arrive home.

I found here this B, so i don't know.. That's why I'm asking for help. 😀😁
