Taiyodo Beauty 35 Super 
The 35 Super was the first 35mm rangefinder produced by Taiyodo Koki. It came in two versions; one with a Copal shutter with a maximum speed of 1/300th sec., and the other with a Synchro-Compur shutter with a maximum speed of 1/500th sec. The only other difference was the location of the flash contact - consequential to the shutter fitted.
I have no idea what the original UK cost of the Canter was, or if it was even sold in the UK?

The acquisition of this camera completes my collection of Beauty rangefinders, save for a few model variants - should they ever come-up for sale. This particular camera has been listed by an eBay seller in Japan for many months, but their price was too high. In recent weeks, the seller reduced their expectations a couple of times, and I resolved to buy if the cost fell below £37. Happily, in November 2018 the item was listed at the equivalent of about £30, with free shipping. However the total cost with import taxes came to £41.10. Goods from outside the EU attract 20% tax on any value over £15, so the duty on this purchase was £3.10, plus, the Post Office collect this fee and charge an additional £8.00 for their
The camera is in nice condition and FWO. There would once have been a screw-fit collar around the shutter release, but this has long gone.
