Got a hold of an odd plastic backed Omnikey 101. Definitely one of the cleanest Alps keyboards I've gotten a hold of so far. First time I've seen this model and I'm kinda wondering if anybody knows anything about it. It lacks n-key rollover and has two switches for AT/XT and swapping Caps Lock and Ctrl keys. The case is held together pretty solidly despite only having one screw and plastic clips. The lock lights are like the earlier Omnikeys with the Caps Lock and Num Lock swapped and the nav cluster is like an Omnikey Plus or Ultra.

I was going to post this; there's a NOS one on eBay at the moment <removed>

I noticed it said "101" even though it uses the old 102's layout and the sticker is flat. Yours also uses the same paper-style model sticker as gold-badge OmniKeys. I'm guessing these are older versions; note the different case shape as well.

Yeah, the top case has the same styling as mine as well as having the plastic tabs and AT/XT CapsLock/Ctrl switches in the same spots. Wouldn't be surprised if has an identical PCB.
