The Spitfire is the catch of the two. Google Schwinn serial number, the amount of information on the web on Schwinn is endless. The other bike looks more generic to me, and as a small juvenile bike, value is limited.

Thanks I did Google the Spitfire and it comes up as 06/20 - 06/26 in 1952.

Then it appears to be a Deluxe Spitfire, but is missing its tank. They have pics in the 1953 catalog, but I could not find pics in the 1952 catalog (but it is on the price list). Spitfire that came with the truss rods, rack and light, also came with the tank (and horn). The basic model just came with fenders.
