Can't really see the serial number, but I'm going to guess a '36 or '37.
You're probably getting private messages about that seat right about now.
Going to try and work the serial number harder tomorrow. They are very shallow. Trying to not make them disappear. And yep. It's a "hot seat".

I do not normally collect bikes... My first 2. are this one and a 38 Schwinn D97XE Christmas Special.

I like it.

Thanks ,so I take it that it would not have came with a tank, I read something I believe on this thread about lost ( as in haven't came across any) B & C serial numbers and D series starting after the war,I havea couple of more pics in another thread, where I started scrubbing it clean.
ps I am pretty upset about the streamers being gone :)

Something's off, I'm reading that the war department limited the number of bicycle MFG's to two Columbia & Huffman in Sept of1942 although there's no holes in the headtube for a badge, how many 1943 bikes could CWC have made, unless they catalouged unsold bikes built before Sept 42 ,as 43's?

Any estimate on year and model of this bike? I have searched and searched and seem's to me something with the bike is a little off as in items seem to be mixed on the bike. I am also new to the restoration game so probably my issue. Appreciate the help!

That’s a postwar bike. Might look odd because it’s a 24” model. Post a pic of the serial number.
