I am pretty sure that your guard is an aftermarket guard from the 40s. It looks like there are multiple holes on the front brace so that it would fit more bikes. But it was a higher level guard. Maybe MacCauley? It looks like the non-ribbed version of this one. Many times these are attributed to Manton and Smith bikes.

All I know about it is that it was found under a house along with a teardrop pedal.
It's going onto my march build off bike but I'd like to know what it came from.

The chain guard is in fact a Shelby. I’ve got 2 original Shelby prewar bikes with that chain guard. One is a 1940 Shelby built Hiawatha, and the other is just a prewar Shelby
