May I ask what this is? Looks like it's not kinda M-cut mod result neither normal SSK?

It's the 38th SSK as the serial number says. The chopping job was done by IBM engineers. :)

After many months of eBay stalking, I finally nabbed an SSK for a decent price. Can't wait for it to get here and join the club!

Nice! The date looked familiar, so I flipped mine over... my SSK was built on the same day! March 3, 1993. But our ID numbers are 1188 apart - they sure made a lot of them that day for such a rare keyboard! (or maybe regular Model M's shared the same number space... or they produced big runs of SSKs on certain days...)
