Arrived today. WW1 Columbia 'Military Model'. My friend bought it in Normandy, France.
The saddle is not a military one.
My original paint unrestored Columbia Military Model (shown in the 3rd photo, in an extract from my book) has a 'USA' prefix serial number, whereas this one has a 'T' prefix. Any ideas of the significance of that?

Hello;
Beautiful bike!
Your number started with a J and not T, you guess the tail of J left.
I own the J29908 and i know the J 171.. at a friends house.
You also have this one in a museum in England "OldBike.eu", the J18182
