The JEM Jr. cameras were manufactured in in the 1940s by the J.E. Mergott company of Newark, New Jersey. They made many versions of this camera in this same body style of molded and pressed sheet metal with an enameled front panel, and released them under many brands - but Jem Jr. was the most common.
The Girl Scout Edition is a beautiful green color, of course, and has the official Girl Scout emblem below the lens, but is in every other way just like the JEM Jr.
There is a rumor that a Boy Scout edition also exists, however, after extensive searches, MFBOXCO has not been able to confirm this.
We will report once we have used this camera ourselves, or we have input from the community.
