You're describing an ASR (Automatic Send Receive) teleprinter.  KSR
means Keyboard Send Receive: no tape.

You may be correct. It has been the the better part of a half-century. I recall two almost identical 20mA devices adjacent to PDP11's, with/without paper tape readers on the side.

The Model 19 was more fun.

Don't recognize the model.
