Mystery Rod Braked Raleigh: Is it a Superbe?

I recently got an email from a gent “across the pond” who has this 1962 Raleigh, at least that’s what the Sturmey-Archer AW hub says. It’s rod braked but with 26″ x 1 3/8″ wheels (590 mm) vs the more typical 28″ (635 mm) wheels found on rod-braked roadsters. “Hockey stick” chainguard plus a Dynohub. I’m guessing it’s either a Superbe (I’ve seen rod braked Superbes) or maybe a Dawn Tourist. Anyone have any ideas?
