Old Xerox keyboard with unknown (to me) switches and what I believe is some kind of touch pad/mouse control on the right.

That is a seriously bad-ass piece of gear.

An ISO UK, DAN-branded, white Alps NTC KB-6266 in good looking condition. Are the caps printed? It almost looks like dyesub maybe?
(probably not that special, I thought an Alps kb in ISO was neat.)

Good grief, the description is mostly a series of complaints. I get that ebay sellers experience a lot of dumb or dishonest buyers, but all that whining will drive away good buyers too.

I'd love to have a keyboard that has a brand name that's close enough to a real person's name: "Dan and I have some work to do."

Yeah. The complaints went from passive-aggressive to just aggressive. I've, thankfully, had only a few problems on ebay. I don't complain about it in my ads. I come to Deskthority and do it, instead :D. More seriously, it is probably a good idea to list problem buyers or sellers here so the community knows about them.

Just like how trucks have to be named after girls from classic rock songs and servers have to be named after mechs from battletech I think keyboards too should have a themed restriction on the name. I think naming them after stereotypical horse names would be good. Lemondrop, Maplehoof, Butterscotch, all good options IMO.

Naming battleship keyboards is pretty easy, since there have been plenty of real battleships in history.

I would speculate that the 138xxxx model number makes this a Model M, not a Model F.

Very unusual sub-legends that I haven't seen before.

Unusual f122 always went a war on ebay, happened couple times. This one maybe not that special but curious how much would end up with.

It's a Model F. It has the metal pan and Model F label. I'm really curious as to what the small print on the badge is.

Edit: Never mind. It's in the listing header. :oops:

Not great, but interesting (sort of). Could be useful for putting your Model M under your laptop:

Yeah, not really a "great" find, but apart from the ridiculous price, it seems interesting.
