I'm in Poland, which is right across the border from Germany. So no shipping problems
I have put several alerts on Ebay.de few months ago. This way I am emailed every time a CBM-II related item is posted. There is actually not that much of them. In the past 6 months, there were only 5 auctions:
* Two 610s, which I was not interested in since I already have one.
* A 710, which was well over my financial limit.
* A dead 720, which I bought.
* A 8250LP, which I bought.
Plus one overpriced B128 on Ebay.com
Interestingly, 3 of these 5 items were actually from Austria, not from Germany. Maybe that's where most of the treasure is hidden
It's a real pity about these keyboards being thrown away. I guess many other valuable hardware was lost this way. I bought my 610 from a school boy, who got it from the teacher who was clearing stuff from the IT classroom. Otherwise it would also be thrown out, I suppose.
On the bright side, I fiddled with the 720 and managed to get it working (without the keyboard, of course). Then I broke a pin in the character ROM so now the display is all green (all character bitmaps are $FF)
But should be easy to fix. If only I had this keyboard...
