I just went and took a look at one of my MicroVAX 3100 Model 20 boxes.
The label on the back says Model DV-31BT1-A. No idea what the
difference might be between that and a DV-31BT4-A. The badge on the
front only says MicroVAX 3100 just like your picture here:


When you power it on what does it say for the KA**-* CPU version? If
it says KA41-A then it is a Model 20. A KA41-D would be a Model 20e.

Or if you were to open it up and look at the part number on the CPU board:
54-18856-01 MicroVAX 3100 Model 10 / Model 20 KA41-AA (90ns)
54-18856-02 VAXserver 3100 Model 10 / Model 20 KA41-BA (90ns)
54-18856-04 MicroVAX 3100 Model 10e / Model 20e KA41-DA (60ns)
54-18856-05 VAXserver 3100 Model 10e / Model 20e KA41-EA (60ns)
70-28103-01 InfoServer 100 KA41-CA
54-18856-06 InfoServer 150
