    My new little girl came today!!! :D

    She's in pretty good shape...some scratches on the bed, and the decals on the front side and middle (the fabric path) are worn down quite a bit, but no chips out of the paint or anything, and she works and sounds great! She needs a good cleaning and oiling, but I'm so happy!! I wasn't expecting it to be delivered until Friday, so it was pretty awesome to hear that door bell today!

    Anyway, the singer-featherweight website, where I was previously able to get the "birthday" seems to be down and I can't seem to find the information anywhere else...I've been able to peg her birth year to 1941. The serial number is AG 697 851...can anybody help me find her birthdate?

    I'll post some pictures later when I get a chance to get her cleaned up a bit. :D

    All you do is Google Singer featherweight with that info and you will be surprised at all the info about it you will get. If you can't do this, then I suggest you pm lostn51 as he is a pro. Hope this helps.

    Thanks Debbie. I think I found it - June 4th 1946 :)

    I had previously found a bunch of sites that listed the year based on the first two letters, but nothing giving the actual date. It seems there were "AG" runs from 41-47.

    Congratulations on your FW! :) I got one last month and am so happy with her. You can check her age by going to http://www.featherweightfanatics.com...ringDates.html

    Looking forward to seeing her pics!

    My girl was born in 1948 between April & June that year, probably the end of April.
