In a word, no  :hysterical:  I suspect not.  But you could try listing yours, perhaps undercut him by a few pounds and see if you get any offers..

 

I used to have one of those, it eventually succumbed to a cup of coffee being spilt over it but it was pretty decent while it lasted.  I got used to the wonky layout pretty quickly.  I think I paid about £20 for it well over 10 years ago..

 

There's lots of "interestingly" priced items on Amazon..  Would you pay £6k for a box canvas print of Paul Ross (used, complete with stains) for example??  Or some Audioquest speaker cable for the price of a modest house in some areas (actually I expect that one is probably a real listing!).

The older mechanical IBM keyboards (Model M) go for around $40 to $200 (new) on ebay. That is the highest I have seen any old keyboard go for that was actually selling. I had many requests at my shop for the same mechanical IBM keyboards. I actually have and still use a Model M, I like the click and the feel. Unfortunately some of the keys are starting to not work very well. There are kits to repair them but I may just let it go soon.
