Rumor has it that Teo Zenios may have mentioned these words:

Ah, all the auctions I saw listed them as Amiga 2000 only - I thought they
were different from the 4000T keyboards.

That'll make things a bit less expensive... ;-)

If I get serious about the Amiga, I'll prolly invest in one of those in the
future; I *love* my IBM Model 'M' keyboards, it seems the Northgate use
similar keyswitches. Until then, I found an auction with A2000 keyboards
for under $20 shipped; I didn't know these were operationally similar.
