    What year is this Phillips?

    I have this Phillips.
    The old widow I got it from said it's a '46.
    My friend says it's pre-war.

    Anyone know for sure?

    Most likely pre-war.

    1. It has the old top tube mount shifter.
    2. Very few bicycles were made in 1946, it took a couple of years for production to roll up.
    3. The seat looks pre-warish.

    In either case it is a grand old bicycle, and well worth restoring.

    The seat is an old Persons "Majestic", made in the US - which confuses me even more.

    That's a laid back seat tube.
    I have spoken.
