B&H Flyer, age check?

Hi all, friend of mine stumbled onto this B&H Flyer, according to the parking stickers it has to be pre 1951.

He spent some time telling me it was a schwinn then told me the serial which sent us off in a completely wrong direction...
Does anyone know how to determine the date from the serial or just know from looking at these pics?

D.P Harris was the main manufacture, at some point Baker took it over, thus becoming B&H.

Bumped from the dead, friend and I are still stumped. Appears to have a New Departure type D rear coaster hub.
