This is a Vintage 1952 (October 17-20th) Schwinn Panther.  This bike seems to be all original, but the tank has been modded - painted blue with a pair of new screws holding in the horn.  Seems to be the original tank, rear rack, chainguard, fenders, and even the original front light.

Original Chromed fenders, ok shape but dings, dents, rust, and scrapes. 
Original Delta Rocket Ray front fender light, in black - rough chrome but has original lens.
Original painted chainguard in good shape - no dents, good paint, ok decals (decals have some scratches)
Paint is orange and black (and blue tank...) - original was red and black but faded out to orange.
Fenders have rough chrome, but will clean up with some (lots) of work and steel wool
Horn is included in tank, but the button is now blue
Rear rack is original, but is slightly bent down.
Seat tube decal is in great shape
**Cadet speedometer works well, has 1311 miles on it, and rough chrome.
