    Hi,
    I've found one in an antique store. It's marked Italy, the motor says USA. It has shuttle bobbins, I believe that's what they are called. The case is brown and looks a little mildewy. It's marked $75.00. What do any of you vintage machine lovers think? What should I look for if I go back to visit it again? Is it worth this?
    I have two Featherweights already and just got the green light for a used HQ16 that might come on the market soon so I'm not sure if I will buy it but I am curious.
    Thanks in advance,
    lots2do
    PS My internet use is spotty at the moment. I will check back in when I am able to.

    You need to ask Billy (Lost51) He has a Vintage machine site on here. He is an expert.

    Necchi is like the Mercedes Benz of old sewing machines. I know that Billy loves them. I have one that I don't use very often now, but i had a 1970's era Necchi for 15 years and I loved it!
