If it's a small model, I'd expect it to be a 9402. Intermediate sized
machines were 9404.

If it's an older CISC architecture machine, the model suffix might have
a letter and two digits; the one I had was a 9406-B45; the B series
was pretty old. Later CISC and most (all?) of the RISC models have a
three digit numeric suffix.

It's definitely true that IBM didn't make it easy to identify AS/400
systems or their options.
