    Hi all. I started a thread yesterday about buying a Singer that the seller said dated to 1865. I'm trying to confirm that by the serial number, but there are two numbers that look like serial numbers, one above the other. Do I use the top or bottom number, or is there another place I should look? Thanks.

    Don't have an answer, but I saw your posting:
    "Dating my ancient Singer" and was wondering if you were going to ask about which restaurants in your area accepted AARP cards.

    I was thinking this was going to be a poetic post about a love affair with a handsome old machine! :lol:

    I'm sure someone here will come up with a good answer for you.

    Try cross posting this onto the Vintage Sewing shop thread. Billy or Glenn or Miz Johnny should be able to help you out.
