I have a IBM 5150 that is a "B" model but does not have the "B" printed on the back of the unit.

Rather than the words Keyboard and Cassette it has icons.

Was this some of the last 5150's made, could it be a model to sell overseas?

Seems so. That's exactly how my 1984 European model looks as well.

Exactly the same as my later model 5150.

Just to add, I have a 1983 240v model and it has the "B" on the back.
