  It's definitely IBM, that much I can tell you.  But they used that
form-factor for pluggable modules for hundreds and hundreds of different
models of stuff spanning decades.  Mainframes, peripherals,

  There may be a part number on it somewhere, probably of the form
NNXNNNN (where N is a number and X is a letter), and there's a slim
possibility that it could be identified from a 3rd-party replacement
parts database or something like that (I've had some luck with that
occasionally), but it may not be possible to really narrow it down
without additional context.
