Reverse polarity on OEM Atari PSU label!

Well this is a first. Good thing I put a fuse on my circuit. 
 

OEM STacy PSU label says its center positive on the barrel Jack. It’s center negative. I was making a battery pack for it and it popped the fuse and left me scratching my head.

I got a STacy with no power supply, but the seller pointed me to a universal power supply that he used with it. After I got it, I looked at the bottom of the STacy, and it shows that it wants an 18V center negative power supply. However, when I looked online for pictures of the original Atari STacy power supply, it shows what you showed - 16.5V center positive. I was perplexed too, but never got the time to ask on the forums. Anyway, thanks for your help. 😃

 

Now, the next question is...does it want 16.5V or 18V?
