Help with Raleigh era Humber serial numbers

Anyone have any info on Raleigh Era (post 1932) Humber serial numbers? Do they follow the standard (ha) Raleigh format?

I wasn't able to glean anything from some quick online searches.


More info on and photos of this bike here.

I don't think anyone has cracked that code, but is there any reason not to date it by the rear hub? Do you think it's not the original rear wheel?

I know this is a very old thread, but looking at that lug on the frame in the picture, it was made between 1949 and 1955...
