Let's i.d. this bike!
This is a recent find, no idea what it is and would like to find a badge for it. I think it's pre-1933.
Model A rear hub
no badge (2 3/16'' badge hole spacing)
year? model? most likely badge?

Any help?

There are some 20s ads somewhere on various threads that I recall show that chainring, maybe old Monkey Wards or sears ads?

The chain ring does not look to me like those Excelsior-built Elgin bikes, because of the wide drive pin/hole.
The other E-bike, Emblem Angola NY used that style with the 2" offset drive pin, and 1"-24 cone (drive side).

The double bar looks large, not small like Emblem, not medium like others, but 1" peculiar to Schwinn, (and maybe Shelby?).
Looks much like a Schwinn-built Mead, except for the badge holes, so maybe it wore another badge, (like Mongeese said).

So Mead was a jobber, and may have assembled bikes from parts of different manufacturers, to reduce costs.
Maybe post a picture of the serial number?
