From what I know about this these items. We discovered this Canon camera system among the personal belongings of my Father in Law who was a retired U.S. Army (full) Colonel till the time of his death. I know he purchased this system while stationed with the 8th Army in occupied Japan either in 47/48. The camera body & 135 mm lens are both clearly marked "Made In Occupied Japan" From what I can gather there are those who want these cameras. Again, from my limited research the camera is either an SII-B or II-B. Any assistance would be appreciated. Thanks.
