Unboxing a Brand New IBM Model F XT


Managed to find an IBM Model F XT that was kept sealed since its production. Here is the experience of unboxing a 36 year old keyboard.


Sooo… I’m guessing somewhere around $1000?

And, most importantly, how does it smell? XD


Haha not quite that expensive otherwise wouldn’t have been able to afford it XD

Hmm smelled great honestly. The outer box was kind of smelly but the board itself/insides had a clean smell


That cable is so crisp!


Thanks for sharing
