According to MacTracker, it was sold from Jan to July 2001.

Since it is a university-owned machine, it isn’t easy to sell or give away to someone outside of the university. Regardless, it will probably join my still working Power Macintosh 8100 (purchased in April 1994) in my very small Mac Museum. I am still kicking myself for not keeping the Mac IIci that ran my department’s first web server starting in 1995.
