This is a Nova chuck with a set of 2" jaws and a 1" x 8TPI adapter, and the Wormwood screw accessory.  Retail is around $230.  I am asking $100, you pay shipping (flat rate medium box is about $17).

I have 2 of these and a SuperNova2, same jaws, same adapter, same Wormwood screw included with each.  If you buy all three I will pay shipping.  It is my understanding that all Nova jaws fit all Nova chucks and I have others; let's talk.

Also available is a set of 4", 6", and 10" Rockler rests with 5/8" posts.  Asking $55 which is half price.  You pay to ship.

I have live and dead centers as well but I must confess . . . I know little about turning (turns out I know even less than I thought) and setting fair prices on these things has been a chore.  If I am way off on some of these prices do not hesitate to offer an opinion. :)

I think I’m interested in one. Is it this kit with everything included? https://www.rockler.com/nova-48293-pro-tek-g3-chuck-with-2-4-and-pin-jaws-1x-8-tpi-direct-thread

And now you stumble upon the difficulty for me as a non-turner in identifying and pricing these things.  This is an older Nova chuck simply called a "Nova".  The one in your link is a G3.  They use a different type of tightening wrench, the G3 doesn't have the sealed back, and I am not including the larger jaws or the pin jaws shown in the link.

I'd be interested in one of the other chucks, as well as a set of the larger jaws (can't quite tell the sizes from the picture).

The larger jaws are 50mm, 78mm and 105mm although I see them listed in metric and imperial various places.

Supernova2 set is sold.  Two Novas and other items still available.  For the life of me I cannot tell the difference between the two models of chuck.  One person claimed the tightening/loosening direction was opposite but that turned out to be the "Lite" derivative.  All these chucks operate the same way and all Teknatool chucks take all Teknatool jaws and accessories . . . or so their website claims.
