I am a little confused. Is it a H1 or H2 that you are referring to? The H2 is sold at the same time as the S2 (non-Super), it came marked as Asahi Pentax H2 (sold in Europe) and Heiland Pentax H2 in the US, and also Asahi Pentax S2 outside USA. In some markets it was branded Asahiflex (South Africa and Finland(!)).

In your text, you are comparing H2 and S1-SV. There is no link between H2 and S1. When the S1 was introduced, it was sold as H1 in USA. The SV was sold as H3v, indicating that the SV is an improved version of the S3. The S1a was sold as the H1a in the US.
Sorry - I got confused too, searching through documentation on the net. The camera I first showed is indeed an H1, and the other I found with the same linkage is an H3.
I'll revise my posts to be correct.

But anyway, it is very interesting that these differences exists. maybe you should create a new thread to get help from some more people here on the Forum.

I don't have any H* in my collection, yet. I don't even have the S3 yet, and I managed to sell off my S1a black... well
