With this wonderful Citation we got the third version of a TI-1000 family based calculator sold by Western Auto under their label. If you remove the wooden key-plate known from e.g. the "electronic Wizard" from this Citation you'll get a TI-1050. Everything else is identical, even the back of the calculators tells you the manufacturer Texas Instruments.
