It was my impression that the "Tandy" branded line consisted mostly of 
equipment targeted squarely at the business community, who might have 
been less receptive to the moniker "Radio Shack".  However, there was 
duplication between the "Radio Shack" and "Tandy" products.  Tandy did 
have their own B&M retail outlets.

That being said, my Model 16 bears the "Radio Shack" label.
