1) I have never seen a joystick for the jr that had ANY resemblance in
appearance to it.
2) The TechRef in question was from 1981 (the original release of the PC
5150), LONG before the jr was even imagined.

I'm assuming that the drawing was intended to be a generic picture of a
joystick ("to be purchased after-market"), and that their artist simply
happened to use the RS one as a sample.
