This close relative of the TI-1200 was sold under different names from the distributing company Western Auto. Most common names for this "woody" calculator are "electronic Wizard" or "M4986".
The only difference to the TI-1200 are the wooden foil over the keyplate and the missing TI logo.
Three versions are known, this one with the "Wizard" logo, one with the "Citation" logo and one without logo.
With the M4987 a similar calculator with memory was sold.
Don't miss the rare Texas Instruments 1265 manufactured for Koh-I-Noor Hardtmuth.
