Yes it is. Rubber dome Model M part numbers begin with "7"
But what’s wrong with inequality, anyway? Answers to this question are rarely satisfying, but they do serve as a political litmus test about the kind of inequality that matters. A Marxist might concern herself with how economic inequality divides society into classes, allowing capitalists to wield wealth as a weapon, disempower workers, and extract their labor. The humanitarian position tends to prioritize sufficiency of resources and basic rights; feminists, environmentalists, and advocates for the undocumented, the disabled, and minorities would say social inequalities matter, too, and that part of the problem with economic inequality is that it reinforces them.
New research has shown us that economic, social, racial, and gender inequality are inextricably linked—and that the effect of high inequality is to create even more inequality. Many other economists have shown that high levels of inequality hurt democracy because, among other things, they allow rich people and corporations to buy the support of politicians.

Well, it wasn't a 82G3292. I don't know where the seller got that idea, but that's not a known p/n.

After magnifying and contrast-enhancing the shot of the label, it looks like it was a 82G2384:





...which, according to DT's Model M variants list, is a Latin American Spanish layout with buckling springs.
