158 Yuan for one full set.
Or 100 Yuan/ea if you take them all (about 45 sets).
Very cheap price!!!
Link can't be opened outside China, but you can find that seller if you have '闲鱼' APP.

some keys are not normal size, such as backspace, enter.

Anyone want to organize a GB?
Be aware that the caps are grey and that those with weird symbols will be pad printed.
Plus some caps have a different profile from what you would expect.

How much are the quoted Chinese prices in € and/or $?

Yep, a 'quiet-touch' unsaver. Not my favorite board to type on, but interesting all the same.

I remember seeing a bunch of those keyboards (without the monitor) on taobao quite cheaply a while back. They might still be around.
Missed this post. Here's the complete set up. That Teller computer is missing the main unit (and the IBM 4704 computer it attaches to but so does mine)

Why does a terminal keyboard need mains power? And what's that switch on the backk doing? Is this modified for some reason?
