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.
The difference in characterization of crime and who commits it skews what criminality looks like demographically. "What we're seeing so far is very similar to the process that we see with Islamic violent Jihad radicalization," said former FBI Assistant Director Frank Figliuzzi, "This wanting to belong to a cause greater than yourself, wanting to get affirmation from a group who may not even know who you are or ever met you. And then feeling like you're part of this deployment, this cause. You heard him say on the clip 'It's my job to protect this.'
No, it's not your job. But you think it is. And video last night shows him walking around roaming around with the assault rifle not really doing much of protecting anything." Figliuzzi made it clear that calling these characters "troubled" is a misnomer. "I would assert," Figliuzzi continued. "that it's time we stopped using the word ‘troubled’ with regard to white young people who act out like this and start thinking about the radicalized term that we used when people of color or people of Islamic faith act out like this. This is a radicalization process that's happening. It happened with the El Paso shooter in Texas. We kept hearing he was troubled. No, he was radicalized. And it's happening online."

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.

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.
