I have a 1953 Schwinn Paramount that I inherited and have been riding as my daily commuter. I think most everything is original, but am not sure. Where can I find out what the original components should be, and any idea of its value?

The Schwinn Paramount was a special machine, as Sheldon Brown describes. I cannot tell you what components it had, because it seems that they were custom built to order only.

Maybe the people at the Schwinn Paramount Registry can help more.

Looks like it's valuable. Look after it.
