That is the animal David,

This brings out one other possible spotter's point.  The B board seems to be 
the only CoCo 2 to have Tandy on the front label, while the A board said 
Radio Shack on the front label.  Both the A and B CoCo 2s had the Tandy 
label on the underside. At least my collection has been consistent on this 
point along with the CoCo 2s I have passed close enough to look at.  All 
CoCo 3s appear to be Tandy branded.  FWIW as near as I can tell, I have one 
or more of every variant from the "D" board CoCo 1 through the CoCo 3 with 
the exception of the white CoCo 1.  Unfortunately time and space issues may 
require some adjustments in my collections.
