finally a keyboard that highlights more dirt than a Das

(9600 baud warning) went through the trouble of transplanting one of his Filco 87 models with double shot keycaps, the contrast of those keycaps are so high you would think you have the power of jesus on your side, but they look nice and I bet feel even nicer.
Hey, that poor guy was me. I replaced a faulty cherry blue switch, completely cleaned the board and swapped in the DS keys. They are MUCH nicer than the standard thin Filco caps. Wasn't an easy swap, but it was fun and stress relieving. Minus the DS keys, my total cost on that board was $55 shipped.
Thanks to Manyak here, I've turned into an keyboard-aholic. Just picked up an IBM Model M Space Saving BS keyboard today and I'm happily cleaning the thing inside out. Another GREAT keyboard.
Next up......a Realforce and hopefully a Guru-Board when/if it's available.
