Riding a '38 Autocycle Deluxe
From the looks of this frame plating is visible on the down bar, top bar, and bottom side of the bottom bracket. Did Davis or any Yale bikes come with a fully nickel plated frame? It would have been lovely to see this machine new from the factory.

I believe that @Dave Stromberger had a similar frame a few years back. If it was ever plated, it was hard to see.
"I" is the 9th letter –– so 1909(?).

Wore out three sets of tires already!
Funny that the rims, stem and bars are gone but it still has the brake arm clip on the frame. What a nice shiny finish under the badge.
