The US maker of enlargers Beseler evidently had a government contract to produce a 4×5 inch press camera. Like the Beseler Topcon cameras, it may have been an import, branded with the Beseler name. This model is sturdily built, has a viewfinder with multiple lens framelines, and offers a focal-plane shutter and a Graflok-style back. This is quite an uncommon camera, raising the question of how seriously Beseler pursued civilian sales of the model.
