Minetta Foreign
This is another beautiful camera, although in slightly poorer condition than the Minetta I acquired recently.

It did, however, come with a HIT leather case (pictured) and two rolls of 17.5mm film. Very nice.
Unfortunately - as with the other Minettas - not much is known about this camera. At a guess, I would say it was constructed in Japan sometime around 1960; presumably for an overseas market. If you can help flesh out the Minetta story, please let me know.
