Beautiful bike, Mark! Didnt the one fellow on FB suggest it was Emblem made? The sprocket suggests that. Also, fork crown resemble mine a little and different size bearing cups for forks. Either way, I love it! Pic of my 1934 Emblem fork. Of course, just a guess!

Westfield. At least the double D crank and chain ring. The chain ring looks different than the other Emblem “sand dollar” chain ring.
Should follow typical Westfield serial numbering; I believe 1923 extrapolates with an “A” forward and 1922 with an “N” backward.

Maybe also check the seat post clamp bolt for a notched or slabbed cutout.

Nice flush joints on the “arch bar”.

No Emblem parts really, and upper headset is different. Fork similar. Did Emblem do business with Westfield in the 30's? Picture of dropouts?

What I would call a 1932-K Westfield-built "Arch Bar". Could also be a 1919-K black bike, with that odd (old) sprocket and badge(?).
By 1930, Westfield had a new Arch-Bar design, where the truss bar attached to the down tube, (unlike yours).
Maybe the coaster brake hub could hint at the actual year; (some people know how to do that).
It looks like the original tabs to interface with the chain tensioning screws are still there, (never really seen one before).
More on the et-cetera part.
The headset looks pre-Torrington (pre-33) Pope style - means 26 threads per inch, 17 x 5/32" balls, and undersize 1-1/4" cups.
Likely to also have undersize (~1.9") bottom bracket cups, (not made these days).
Packard badged bikes were also sold by CWC, Colson, Arnold and somebody else.
The fork is of the triple-plate crown design, not common to older Columbia bikes, but Westfield did have them too, eventually.
Thanks for the responsive pictures. I have not graduated to the pedals/parts level, but they look old.

They were triplicated; then the O/P deleted all of them, instead of just the duplicates.
Try to imagine that they may have showed the Westfield slotted or slabbed seat post clamp binder bolt, close-ups on the old pedals, the Pope headset, and I forget what else.
