A Japy 50 with a very unusual serial number. See more at the link.
Admittedly, the spool covers on this machine - rarely found on Etoile and Japy 50 - were only borrowed for the photo shoot - from a Hermes 3, whose ribbon covers correspond.

RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Japy 50 on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Japy Serial Number page and the Japy 50 By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
