So i have been admiring those cute little machines called featherweights and i never had one but would love to buy one and i am having a hard time knowing the different number after the model number. For example when i went to ebay the machine is described as a 221 or 222 then there is a serial number or something after that, so how important is that number and does it have anything to do with the price?
I know the condition of the machine, cosmetics, and attachments....etc play a big role but what other factors decide the price?
I also looked at some on craigslist and the price range is big, like there are some for $200 + and some are $600, what is a reasonable price for one of these cuties?
P.S forgot to ask how much do they normally weigh?
