Name likely a house brand produced for a chain store.

The format and placement of the machine's serial number will provide a good clue as to the actual manufacturer.

There appear to be numbers stamped into the left side of the seat tube.

Does it look to you that this is a serial or perhaps numbers put in by a licensing agent?

I agree it is likely a re-badged something-or-other created for a house brand. It kind or reminds me of some Raleighs I've seen but the head badge reminds me of Schwinn.
Look for clues in the components possibly.

Looks to be a late 50's rebranded Raliegh product. Nearly identical to some Robin hoods I have seen.

Thanks folks. Turned out to be a POS with a nice Brooks 66 saddle on it.
