Uh, a couple of the keycaps are 'missing' and one of the keys has
superglue (from a highschool attempt to re-attach the key-cap) on the
board contacts for the key. It's nothing terribly critical - the ~, ctrl,
both alt, and left-amiga keys - but I prefer the feel of some other
keyboards, and would like to have a 'spare' laying around.
