Picked up in Korea btw. Can't really buy it online

I put my old Model M on sale online with a picture of the sticker on the back. Got a message from a guy asking to tell him the "complete model". Is there any other number I should know about, other than the numbers on the back.
>>
>>68013089
I'd like to know this too because mine is missing the sticker
>>
>>68013089
>>68013969
not that I know of. Back should be good enough.

Maybe provide him a better picture.

Shows all the model numbers.

Also Wikipedia:

>All Model M keyboards made by IBM and Lexmark have an ID label on the underside indicating the assembly part number, individual serial number, and manufacturing date. The general period in which a Model M was made can also often be distinguished by the type of logo "badge" above its keys. The first model Ms (part numbers 1390120 or 1390131) have a square aluminum logo badge in the top right corner. Part number 1391401, and most variants based on it, has a gray IBM logo in a recessed oval at the board's upper left. Later IBM-made Model Ms, and variants subsequently made by Lexmark in the early 1990s (part numbers 1370477, 52G9658, 52G9700, 59G7980, 92G7453, 82G2383, 42H1292, etc.), have a similar oval badge area with a blue logo.

At least we getting new model f keyboards... best we got man.

>>68016138
Fair enough. Though a discrete switch would be nice since then you could put it in whatever board/layout you want.

Bought my first mech keyboard after years of thinking I might want one. Takes a little time getting used to but it's pretty good and feels sturdy.
It's a Leopold FC750R with MX blues.

Don't judge my setup, it's temporary ... hopefully.

>Roomate spilled soda on chinkboard
>Removed all keys, followed all steps in case of spill
>LEDs are fucked, can't even adjust them

Roomate at least promised they'd cover the price, so time to upgrade. Help me pick the right one lads.

>Budget
£100 and below
>Location (continent at least)
UK
>Preferred switch type
Soft to Medium tactile, previous ones had no resistance and felt too easy to do typos with.
>Layout
Not fussy as long as it's Qwerty
>Form factor
100% preferred, 80% also good
>Backlight
LEDs are always cool but can live without them
>Previous/current keyboards
Ajazz AK60. Honestly if it wasn't for the fucking awful switches I'd just buy another one of these.

Thanks in advance, I've always been shit at keyboard shopping

Recommend a leopold, but it has no backlighting.
Ducky one 2 would be a good second pick
>>
>>68016767
Thanks of the suggestion, first time I hear about easy to switch boards. Might try this out if I don't find a good 100% or nonchink model.

Thx, I was kinda just browsing around what I could get from local websites after finding a cool chink kb on aliexpress that I was kinda unsure of. Sure, it was only €70, but bigger stuff like this comes with the risk of customs fees plus VAT, which would be around 30 extra, but I did really want a white kb. So I checked my local tech price comparison thing and really only found this one. Checked some more reviews for this one and the chink and realized that when you think about it really the chinese KB (noppoo choc IIRC) wasn't worth getting considering that it's less well-built (probably still fine), no detachable usb etc.

Kinda shocking to me as a /csg/ guy I keep buying less and less from there. Same with when my brother wanted Redmi Note 5, turned out that it was literally only 2 euros less on ali without the ease of returning it etc. Is chink buying dead?

I was thinking of maybe getting a fancy spacebar or escape button at some point, any recommendations for good sources? I saw some cool spacebars on massdrop but comments said they were all bent... Kinda want to avoid that type of bullshit.

I recently picked a model m keyboard from a flea market. It's pretty dirty though. I'll remove the keys and wash them, but do you have any tips in cleaning the body itself?
>>
>>68017531
Aside from just taking the case apart and cleaning it with some soap, there's this in case it's you want to fix any yellowing it might have:
