Schwinn approved skip tooth 5 speed freewheel removal tool?

Hello everybody,
Does anybody know what kind of removal tool I need to remove the freewheel pictured below? It came stock on my '73 Schwinn World Voyageur, it says Schwinn approved on it. I would have guessed it is made by Shimano and maybe it is but my Shimano freewheel tool does not fit it. Thanks

Never seen one like that. All my freewheels back in the day had slots for tools with 2 or 4 tabs.

It's a pre-'80's Shimano freewheel, which takes a smaller tool than the post-1980-ish "Uniglide" tool. You need to find an old-time bike shop or buy one from Bike Tools Etc.:

It's their part # UB-FW20

Edit: I think... it could be an Atom freewheel, which takes this tool:

Thank you, I guess I should just try a couple bike shops. I don't want to buy the wrong tool.

That is a Schwinn Approved Model J (Japan, made by Shimano) freewheel. To remove it you will need a Park Tools FR-4 or equivelant, which is a very common tool. Although it was made by Shimano, it was also made to Schwinn specifications.
