Japan: NIKOMAT/NIKKORMAT: 1965-1978:

In reality a part of Nikon, but presented as a brand of its own.
Nikkormat (or Nikomat in Japan) were brand names under Nikon meant to compete with Pentax, Minolta, Miranda and others in the consumer market. They had quite some success through the 60s and most of the 70s, until Nikon decided to make lower priced cameras under their own name.

 

Nikomat in japan, Nikkormat in (most of) the rest of the world. It used the same Nikkor lenses as Nikon. Quality was good, but not quite matching Nikon.
Traditional lay out, except..
the shutter time ring, placed around the mount.

Hi Frank,
Lucky you. Only some 4 900 copies were made of the S-series. Yours is among the lowest SN. They probably started at a low 155 xxx.

The SB2 was a part of the S3-series, of which some 360 000 were made. Yours and mine differ with 98000, so not unlikely. Where did you pick it up? Good luck!
