That should be another CBM 220, acquired in August 2006. According to
the pictures, it says 8296-D on the back plate and may have been fitted
with the Execudesk ROMs as well. For those with Denial logins (the
forum is closed for visitors), you can look here:

He appears to have visited you in September, and brought his 2031
to have it reconfigured and download the Execudesk software.

Although the keyboards are detachable, yours is with black keys and
his with white ones. Your unit also looks a bit more weathered. :-)

See how his white keyboard is localized with Swedish/Finnish letters
ÅÄÖ (*). As the entries for CBM 200, 210, 220 on Jim Brain's list once
were added by Ville Muikkula, it suggests to me that this sub-series
of PETs may have been exclusive to Scandinavia or even Finland.

(*) Yes, I know Å is only used in a few loan words and among Swedish
speaking Finns, but it is off-topic.
