Mid 1930’s Elgin Ladies Bicycle

Hi – I bought this old bicycle on Craigslist and I’m trying to do research for the make, model, year, anything that would help. I am still digging around on it and hope to find more clues. It does have “Japan” stamped on the RH side of the frame at the seat post and a series of numbers stamped on the opposite side. The tires are 28 x 1-1/2″ from a Pennsylvania company. The person who sold it to me did not want to part with the old license plate but I took a photo of it for research purposes. The ‘skirt guard’ is obviously homemade and not original. Photos were taken exactly as I got it. Hopefully I didn’t get ripped off on my $60. Any info will help. Thanks!
