One of Beaulieu's lower-end models, made in Japan, probably by Chinon (while other sources like Lossau's "Filmkameras"-book claim that the camera was made in a Japanese plant owned/operated by B&H and J. Osawa & Co.)

None of CHINON characteristics available, but B&H, so probably by J. OSAWA & CO., LTD.
