Years ago, Sears sold rebadged Ricoh cameras and lenses.
That arraingement lasted a long time - well into the 1980's. You can pick up a K-mount Sears fast 50 (1.4 or 1.7) for stupidly cheap compared to most others and it'll actually be a Ricoh lens. There are also Chinon 50mm's floating out there rebadged as Sears as well.

Those might be even more stupidly cheap. Mine was all of $15 after shipping.

FWIW, they'e also (in my opinion) better. My copy has a sloppy aperture ring making it hard to use, but it has a lot of advantages over its Ricoh cousins (shorter minimum focus distance, more aperture stops, wider aperture range, a much more metallic, solid construction).

No, it was a German seller on German eBay, and the pictures showed it from front.
Prior of posting I have tried to find it, but couldn't.
