I dunno, I guess it depends on how you define a 'real' Model M.
"71G4644 is also labeled as Model M and has similar metal plate and
heavy-duty plastic construction, but it is not a clicky keyboard.. it uses
rubber-dome switches instead of buckling springs.."
Mine are marked:
Made in USA Manufactured for IBM by Lexmark
Part No. 71G4644
FRU No. 71G4646
ID No. 0576964

They're nice keyboards, heavy and well built, but they don't have that
great clicky feel.
