We wrote the year 1989 when Texas Instruments started the US-built campaign. Together with the TI-7200 other models like the TI-7000, TI-7100, TI-7300 and TI-7400 were introduced for Wal*Mart and other discounters. And all carried the "Made in USA" logo. If you read the small printed on the back of the calculator you'll notice the sentence "With foreign and domestic components". If you opened the calculator before reading, you would pronounce the word "foreign" !
A much more colorful calculator was introduced with the Fun Calc.
The design was continued with the TI-25 SOLAR introduced three years later.
Unfortunately the screen of this rare calculator cracked during transportation.
