No much knowing about APL capsets, is 90 a good price?

I paid $70 for a NIB set once so $90 for a converted Model M with APL keys seems like a great deal. Uncommon, but not super rare they don't seem to come up for sale too often.

F122 with OG APL set.

Welp...all of the APL keyboards are gone.

They used to sell a set with orange legends but the quality was really poor and now they sell a set with blue legends instead.

The german scrap king has today what looks like a beam spring with blue housings (???)

https://www.ebay.de/itm/Vintage-Keybord ... SwlyVd5O3i

I don't remember ever seeing beam spring switches like those.

Condition is less than ideal though.

Whatever it is I can say it's not IBM or a beamspring.

It is most likely keytronic, have their signature keycaps. This seller list all his keyboards as beamspring so don’t even look at that.

Lol he lists all his hard drives and stuffs as floppy drives, I guess he’s just too lazy to check.(or he might be a moron)

I'm not sure what this thing is,but I'm pretty sure it's not a beamspring,I am rather curious about the 5 locks on the end of the board though.

I've seen these, it's a later foam and foil ref of the Sperry/Unisys terminal keyboard. The FTnn or FTnnn sticker on the back is something I see on many foam and foil boards.
