Most people in this hobby are probably familiar with original Cherry dyesub keycaps and many people know the legendary Czech sets with blue sublegends, especially cause of scottc's find of 10 nib boards years ago. When comparing these sets we can notice several versions of the set:

The standard Cherry one found by scottc:

And the "peacock" SAT version:

These two sets have some differences in their layout but in general they feature standard European icon modifier keys and Czech top printing with blue English front printing. Recently I was able to obtain a third version of these caps: a version with English as first language and blue Czech printings (placed on the top and not the front). Also this set features some unique ISO text mods (which normally only exist on ANSI dyesub sets), especially the (ugly) 1,25u Shift key which doesn't exist in any other European dyesub set as far as I know.

Here are some pictures of the set (sorry for the photatoes but it's winter with really bad lightning :( ):

So cool. Interesting to see the differences side-by-side. This set is such a weird mixture of English vs. Czech primary legends with the others as secondary.

Sadly not. The seller offered only the caps without the actual keyboard so I can't check the label.

What's weird there? It's US on the left, CZ on the right. Only Y/Z might be swapped.
