Anyone know what this is (maybe fake), can't find it in the Anser bible...

I doubt it's a fake. Back then companies just pulled molds from originals and made "clones". Ansers had several zip codes ending 029, 020 and like this one 068. Can you see if the zip code is visible on the shaft band. Can you post a pic of the band and grip?

Lumpy's book only discusses the Scottsdales and Phoenix Dalehead Ansers.

That is a zip code that Ping used during 1989. Ping made 4 different versions with that zip code. You have version 2.
Check out the publication "Your Guide to Ping Anser Putters" by Detetco page 17. They list your putter in the $35 to $75 range.

Has a nice patina.

Going by the afore mentioned guide, I would suggest that your putter was produced a year or so before the patent number 4,527,799 was issued on July 9th 1985. From around that date, PATENTED would have been removed from the molds of the 85068 Anser's then in production and the new patent number added to these molds, by deduction anyway.
Mr Relish is right, your putter has a very nice patina.
