The Canon Snappy V is a simple fixed-focus 35mm camera from 1989. 

Here's the description from the Canon Museum:

"Developed for export, this is a simple, fully automatic camera with a single focal length lens.The 35mm f/4.5 lens has 3 elements in 3 groups. There are only three shutter speeds: 1/45 sec., 1/60 sec., and 1/250 sec. An electronic self-timer is also provided."

Condition notes
The camera was tested with batteries and film installed and all functions are working correctly (the film was not developed however). The camera has some cosmetic wear to its body (see photos) but the lens is very clean.
