I would say that it is somewhat odd.  The catalog number on the bottom
is 26-3127B.  That number refers to a 64K Extended Basic machine.  I
have a couple of those, and in both cases there is a single 16K
combined ROM soldered to the motherboard (no socket).

The last CoCo 2 models that came with only Color Basic were the
26-3134A and 26-3134B and had 16K of factory RAM.
