It is not. Only very early omnikey 102's came with the coveted gold label.

One of the nicest keyboards you can get, if the switches are in decent shape. That one looks fairly grubby, but still, you never know.

It's interesting to see those caps have the same uneven yellowing as mine.

The plate on that Omnikey 101 appears to be in rather good shape. Might be worth the gamble that the switches are likewise in good shape.

The Omnikey 101 is one of my all-time favorite keyboards. They are very easy to refurbish and convert to USB if you are so inclined. There is ample room inside the case to install an internal converter and panel-mount USB connector. In fact, there are micro-USB connectors available that match the dimensions of the existing PS/2 connector exactly, so that you don't need to drill screw holes or a hole for the USB plug.
