Unknown Japanese touring bike

By any chance, has anybody ever heard of an old Japanese steel road bike with a beautiful headtube badge that says: " CRYSTAL Marubeni Yamaguchi" ?? It also has a nice large decal on the seat tube with what appears to be a Falcon?? It's heavy due to the rims but has fairly nice lugwork and components. Looks like mid-late 70's.... I'm stumped.
I'm also pretty tempted to grab it for $90

Pics might be better for getting an assessment. Also, is there some kind of material decal (i.e. what kind of steel?)
