well, not exactly.

but today i saw at a thrift shop another version of the RCA television monitor that was used for the model 1. However, it didnt say RCA. Although it was virtually the same thing, it actually said "JC Penny" for its brand name. This was very unique. It also had a wood grain housing. Other than that, it was the same.

i bet it was the same model just rebranded they do this all the time even more so today.
most times your paying for brandname rather then technology.

I remember Sears selling an Atari 2600 re-badge under thier own name (a lot cheaper, too).

JC Penney actually rebranded everything, at least as far as electronics was concerned. And wasn't the original TRS monitor just a RCA TV chassis without the barrel tuner assembly ?
