Any ideas what type of switch this is?

It is on an NEC APC-H412 M-698790.

I appreciate any help

Thank you, apparently my google-fu is weak today since that took like two minutes...

So as I read

"The keyswitches in this one have a very soft activation point and a light click. They feel softer than Cherry MX Blue switches and probably activate at about 30g, with the click following later at about 50g. Since with most other clicky keyswitches the initial click happens at the very same moment as the switch activates, these NEC sliders can be quite strange to type on at first. Once you get used to unusual activation and very light touch these switches are pretty nice to type on. Compared to Cherry MX Blue switches or ALPS white/blue these switches are much more quiet and a bit higher pitched." -http://keyboardporn.com/others/nec-apc-h4124d/

It took nine nickels to get the key to register, but fifteen for it to click and drop down all the way. Not quite in line with what is expected above... maybe the keys are worn/stick? I pulled this out of e-waste in my lab and cleaned it well...

9 and 15 was consistent for four keys I tested (s h n t). Really nice to type on since I can sort of float on the keys.
