    Not sure what the NL is and I'm trying to find somewhere that I can check into the serial number to see what I bought. Hopefully it's good and I haven't wasted my money. It seems loud when it sews but maybe a good oiling would cure that? Anyone have any ideas or info?

    It has been taken care of really well and the lady I got it from didn't really use it much, so not sure how much it was used before she got it. The decals are in really good shape.

    Love the decals. That looks like a very special machine. Keep us posted when you get more information.

    Hi - Look at the Singer Sewing Machine Company website for the serial numbers. You have a later (1980-1990's) made in China model that was made to look vintage. It is not "bad", but just not quite as good as an original American made Singer. They are kind of pretty with those flashy decals. I hope that no one represented to you that it is "vintage" or "antique", because it's not. But for just straight sewing it should be fine.

    Now I'm kicking myself for buying it. Sounds like I bought a piece of junk if it was made in China. Actually says Taiwan on the label, but same difference. So irritated.

    Did they tell you it was vintage?

    The ad said 'replica' of the original Singer but I guess I didn't "see" that and I certainly didn't think it was made in China, I thought it was a real Singer. I should have done more research before I bought it. Certainly won't do this again!
