Hercules Tourist Bicycle Help Please

Please help me with resources to identify fair market value of Hercules (made in England) bicycle. I can send pictures. The gear control with H, N, L indicates patent 661889. It has a Miller light system. The rear hub indicates it is a Hercules and "B Type 5", it has Dunlop Champion tires made in Great Britian. The seat indicates Hercules as does several other places on the bike - decals?. It is red and appears to also have original red grips on handles.

Thanks, we are interested in selling the bike.

Sorry I cant give you any info on value, but my first bike was a Hercules made in the 1930s. It was a black 1 speed, with stirrup brakes worked by rods and bell-cranks.

I have found a number, a serial number perhaps. It is on the frame where the back wheel is bolted on. "11653SY" - the hub says "B Type 5, Manufactured by Hercules Cycle and Motor Co., Birmingham, England". Any help on identifying the age and fair market value of this bike would be appreciated. Thanks!
