Default MRI Hang tag styles

All of the MRI kits I've run across have hang tags and header cards like the Zenith II on the left. The Theta 37 on the right seems to be of an earlier vintage, with uncoated cardstock. The prices both match the 1969 catalog. Anyone know the history of MRI kit packaging?

I don't have any hang tag history,
but I did look up the address on the face card.

The MRI building was an old store front built in 1900, now a dress shop.
The picture might be showing 307 State St, 309 could be next door.
The listing shows half a second (mirrored) store next door.

Anyone? Next time I'm in Madison I'll have to see if "309" is visible, and get a photo with the model.
