Default Price Check: IBM Model M keyboard

Part #1390131
(It is the one with the square silver IBM logo)

I had this keyboard sitting around. It plugs in via PS/2 and all keys are working fine. I want to sell it, how much should i be looking at? $20? Just need a ballpark figure cause online i see prices anywhere from $10 - $70

Thanks,

Depends on the condition of the keyboard. LNIB can go at the high end of the range. Most seem to go for $20-30.

I would say $30 is as good price. I bought one a few months ago for that.

Pssht. That one isn't that big. The one I had at work was with a whopping 24 "F" keys and two colums of buttons on the left side that I never touched once. Basically the exact same, IBM AS400 terminal circa 1989. Almost like this one, just with some different keys and an RJ-11 looking connector.

In AS400, at least for me, it toggled a crosshair type thing that followed where the "cursor" was. I have no clue what use could be made of it though.
