    A machine made in 1931? Doubtful. You most likely do have a desirable machine if it's in perfect condition...what's the serial number on it?
    My bubble isn't burst about the machine not worth the e-bay price. I know nothing is valuable until there is a buyer for the price. But, I like my find and to me it is worth a lot just to have one that is rare. Price is but a number.
    As for the serial number it is - AD439095 Series 15-30.

    I love my 15 for fmq - and would love to find a treadle - even just the base - but they are very few and far between here, and not very reasonable to ship. Certainly worth more than $1 -- as far as actual value it is very subjective. Machines that people find at goodwill and yard sales for next to nothing other places are rarely seen here, so are much more valuable locally.
