Wore out three sets of tires already!
V/r Shawn,

Thanks for your input. I'm hearing a lot that's all over the map. Do you know of any other identifiers? I am going to pull the crank this weekend and see what it says.

@REC ... REC has been collecting serial numbers from this era; check with him on his dating thots for your serial number.

Riding a '38 Autocycle Deluxe
1946... early early... H I J K A with 5 digits is 46... probably made in late 45. H was also used in 41 so more then likely this is schwinn using up leftover B.B. shells that had already been stamped with a prewar serial.
Probably had a ton of them ready to go and then pop goes the war... so when war over, start using it again. Waste not want not yada yada

I stand corrected! Should have known that because when I saw that number I was thinking it looked like a '41 number. V/r Shawn
