I'm not too sure about that...
  The 64k Coco2 (TRS-80 markings) with the missing ECB chip is a 26-3127 mfg in the USA, according to the sticker, and it has the vertical channel switch.
  The other 64k Coco2 (Tandy markings), 26-3127B mfg in the USA, according to the sticker, and it has the horizontal channel switch.

  I have a Korean 26-3136 (Radio Shack markings) unit the has the exact same layout as the 26-3127B.
  Serial Nos are as follows:

  64k USA 26-1327B Coco2: 296461
  64k Korean 26-3136 Coco2: 2056956
