Henderson, probably from the 1930s or 1940s.

When I was at the Wheels Through Time Museum, an Employee started a 1924 Henderson four with one kick. The Super X in the above photo had to be from the 20s, because Excelsior - Henderson shut down in 30 or 31. I forget the exact year, but I remember the story. The CEO told the board, "Gentlemen; today we stop." and that was the end of the brand until the Hanlon brothers tried to revive it back in the 90s.
