A Swiss Skidata was featured exactly one year ago, but this one, acquired by iyeetdog is even more interesting.

Horizontally, it may be considered a spacesaver because of the 1800 layout, but then BANG! – let's put a 15x5 ortho on top of that! :D

Just in case you need 75 extra keys (all relegendable) – or 63 if you exclude the function row part from that.

PCB made in Germany by GMK, the shell was manufactured in Austria.
