The badge is missing, but an outline of it exists. I would like to find the correct badge, maybe year and model, and any information about the bike that can be provided.

Handlebar diameter is 3/4".
Main frame tubes are 1".

Pictures are from the person I bought it from.

Thank you.

I have seen Pope / Columbia badges with a hand stamped model number.

Wheelbase is 41-1/2". Might be an identifying statistic.

For a minute there you had me doubting my measuring ability. So I went out in the garage and measured again, twice. They are in fact 3/4" o.d. Maybe someone can chime in on that.

You and your friend are right. Most handlebars are indeed 7/8". When I bought this bike I was intrigued about the small diameter.

Any new ideas or comments on this nickel plated beauty?

My thoughts circa 1902 - 1909 Mr. Columbia might know exactly.
