1950's(?) Humber Made in England

Was given this out of a garage from an estate. SoSo shape. Humber Made in England. Running man chainring, chainguard missing. Wheels 26x1 3/8 English, 32 spoke front, 40 rear. Undated Sturmey-Archer 3 speed which spins smoothly, dynamo front hub spins smoothly. Seat post is free and has quick release. Unique front forks. Spring seat with badge on rear removed. Decals say Humber & Made in England. No model decal that I can see. Can't see a frme serial number.

So what, if anything, is she worth?

$200 or more to the right buyer, but the right buyer may be hard to find.

...location, location, location...

Are you sure there's no date on either hub? The rear looks like an early one, might have just one digit (9 =1939, 0=1940). The front hub is early 50s at the latest. I'd expect both to have date codes.

The front is a bit rusty. Nothing showed at first, but I'll try cleaning it up a bit.

Looked all around the rear, couldn't see one. Will check again.

Thanks.
