[W̶T̶B̶] "Nixie style" white caps from Olympia typewriters

Looking for a set of white "nixie style" caps from Olympia typewriters. Cannot find one locally so putting the word out.
They look like this: photos-videos-f64/olympia-aeg-compact-i-t12436.html

So if you have a spare set or stumble across one let me know.
EU and cheap is prefferable :lol:

I think I know what you have planned fellow Marquardt Butterfly keyswitch fan. I have seen one available in the states, but I think even having it shipped to me then flying the keycaps out to you would cost an arm and a leg. If you see one on Craigslist for New Jersey USA I can pick it up and ship the caps out for you. Good luck in your search

Just tested it, answer is nope. In the keycap it looks like 2 slots, one for each prong. The beamspring caps have only 1 slot for the metal prong.

Yeah so far only seen those white ones in USA ebay listings. But shipping and dealing with customs... meh ;)
New year resolution is to finish at least one board. Teensy clones are coming, white and black kydex sheets too.
Caps would be the cherry on top. But i'm patient, it can wait.
