Launch the Remove Office tool and hold down Option at the first dialog, and the "remove office" option will change to "remove licensing information". If you have the 3 systems connected, start one of the Office apps on the oldest of the bunch IIRC the product keys are in a list so you probably used the top one on that system.
Then launch the same app on one of the other two.
The following comes from here: Is there an easy way to do trial and error and change the key if it was already used? It won't tell you "which" key was used, just that the "same" key was used. Also, there was this bit of fluff: Thanks for that info. I have one further wrinkle: But I think my problem is mostly solved by this answer.
Glad it could help. I did try as best as I could to find more info because it's an interesting question.

I was reading it the other way; a file document with the key created by the OP. Of course, you're right. The Mac product key finder is something you can try. If I remember correctly, it works with Office but I do not know if it works with Office or The product key in Office was encoded in a plist file. I'm not sure how Office and encodes the key but since it can detect a change in hardware and must be activated again, it's possible the key is not stored anywhere on your hard drive. Anyway, the Product Key Finder is worth a try.
Microsoft Office Invalid Product Key… - Apple Community
I believe they have a free version in addition to the pay one. Just found this. Might be worth a try, if you can access your old HDD. Please note that you should be looking for these folders in the root directory of the drive on which OSX is installed-- NOT in your user directory. I noticed that the key finder program I linked above does not work with Office since it states that the product key for Office is encrypted.
If you have Office , it will work. Thank you all for the responses..

KevinJS thanks for the detailed instructions I'll give it a shot. Seems to be a lot of surplus work and suggestions for the OP and yet the MS version they were using wasn't even mentioned. Sorry, the posts were like two ships passing in the night… and I missed the OP's update.
