Interesting.

In my opinion, there are 2 things that make the 1390131 the most desirable Model M: the square metal badge and the heavy plate.

This one has the badge, but does it have the plate?

Also, it appears to have the long cord, which is unusual.

I haven't seen silver-badged Model M's which have a pair of drain outlets on the bottom case like this.
And this one seems to have a gray cable unlike mine. It's also interesting.

A 1996 square label made by Lexmark? That's.. Odd..

Maybe its label was replaced with newer one.

This Model M is definitely a strange one for sure. I can confirm the label has not been replaced as I've inspected it very closely and have a lot of experience with Model M's. I was very surprised to find what I did as I had never seen one like this before. If anyone has any questions about it, please don't hesitate to ask.

Really? if so, it's absolutely strange one, which I've never seen too.

It's hard to tell if it has the plate without opening the case. Although the weight of this model compared to earlier Model M's is nearly the same so I would imagine it does.
