I brought this home today(can I keep it, mom?). I'm confident that it is a 1946/47 Snyder built. It looks like hell on the one hand(yes that greenish hue is moss). On the other, it seems to be very correct and it's all straight as an arrow(chaingaurd has a ding). There is plenty of evidence of remaining original paint. So, is this the right Oxalic acid candidate? For no real reason, I'm surprised by the painted rims(maybe white with black pins) should this have painted rims? Can anyone send me pictures of what the seat should look like covered, including picture or insight as to how the leather is attached after rapping underneath. And finally, I guess I might be in the market for the "comet" tank that goes on one of these--a crusty one might be the ticket. Those are Goodyear All Weather tires, unfortunately roached. Thanks for your input

A CABE member reminded me to look at the fender bridge--now confident it's a 1946/7 CWC

the font of numbers should have told me
Also, the drop in the rear fork/stays as seen in the darker areas of the 1st picture, (as well as the then latest streamlined frame).
