Do you have that kind of cash on hand? At $5 each you'd have to pay him $1500 for the lot.
Maaaaaaaaybe But seriously, like I said, I doubt they're all 1391401, which is really the only one that matters. If he has some other rare or cool models I might grab a few extra for myself (or keep an eye out for specific models that others want?). I'm expecting no more than 20 of the "One True Keyboard," 1391401. And I'd prefer late 80s, not 90s. So we'll see. Just trying to gauge interest to help out other enthusiasts snag a deal!
Which is how much? I just got another 1391401 for about $40 shipped in a totally unrelated deal. But I'm not sure what they're worth to everyone else, and I'm going to the warehouse on Saturday. If I have an idea of what they're worth to whoever is interested, I might just grab the lot while I'm there and pass on the bulk discount to whoever else wants them. The guy allegedly has more than 300 Model Ms (although I'm sure most are not 1391401), so there's a possibility of a pretty steep discount.
I'm going to do some research about the different Model M's tonight. I literally know nothing about then besides them being buckling springs switches (is that correct for all of them though?).
