I have two of these bodies with the same engraving on the bottom cover. One of them came with the original manuals, which included a pamphlet explaining that the user manual had not yet been translated into English, since the model was new and not yet being exported. So I assume these were made to be sold in the army PX or duty-free shops in Japan, not to the domestic market. It is clearly factory engraving.

Thats cool. Was the S2 mostly sold in Japan? There is some confusion about the markings on this camera.. Oops. It is of course not H2 but S2!!
