This Montgomery Ward P300 aka TXI-8663A could easily identified as a close relative of the SR-10

Both calculators use the same electronics, the same layout of the keyboard and even an identical mold for the housing bottom. The different look is achieved through a new mold for the upper half of the housing and a different color of the function keys. The color of the housing is slightly different,too.

Compare it with it's sibbling P200 and another SR-10 clone, the Radio Shack EC-425.

Don't miss the rare TXI-8661A based on the Exactra 23 calculator.
