Need key caps for IBM Model M (1993 made, blue logo)


Hi!

I found an old IBM Model M keyboard.
Unfortunately, three key caps are missing:

Pause, and both Control keys.

Problem is, I need the german version (labeled: 'Pause / Unterb.' and 'Strg')

If anyone is selling his Model M, or key caps, please contact me.

I allready mailes clickykeaboards.com and asked if they have some spare parts for me.

Unfortunatelly, they only sell caps for the US/English models.

I'll look in the dumpster where I found the keyboard once again, maybe I can find the missing caps in there.

There are some Ms on ebay, but they're pretty expensive, even slightly broken ones.

Allright, I went to the dumpster again, today.

But all I could find, is one of the Two missing 'Strg' keys.

Still need another Strg key and a Pause key
