Hey Anders, 
I have a DEC vt terminal, one of the shinier ones with PS2 port. The goal is to be as traditional as possible without sacrificing functionality of the original terminal. 

I have looked at the original keyboards for the terminal but I don't know, I seem to think the same price for the keyboard as the terminal is greedy.
