Look on the Sturmey Archer 3 Speed hub. It has a date code stamped in it.

Where on the frame is the serial number located? This gives a clue about the age. Pictures should help as well.

With the man's under the bottom bracket, it is older than the woman's bike. Which bike is the "A03353" SN on? I'm guessing it is the woman's bike and is a 1960 model. See if the date stamp on the SA hub shell agrees. It might be something like " 11 59" since I'm guessing the woman's bike was made in late January 1960.
