    Singer Sewing Machine-Vintage??

    Found a Singer machine that has been repainted-new Sphinx decals-electric-
    Has Ser# 3040013--also has NL-K on it...Ser and NL-K are on bottom of machine? searched internet and cannot seem to find it.. Lady said she thought it was a 902??? Could it be a model 15?? I need help- it comes with the singer case..She said she would reopen on Fri-trying to find out before then if possible?

    If you have a photo of it, you can Google "vintage Singer sewing machine" and then click on "images". Try to match the machine to one of the vintage photos to find out the model number.

    What kind of Singer case does it come with? Is it the "portable" type with a curved wooden dome top?

    What I'm wondering is if it might be some kind of replica or reproduction model. Those can be not very good because they were not machined to the same exacting specifications as the originals.

    NL is a reproduction machine, so, no, it's not vintage. Do you have a picture?

    Singer said it was a Nostalgic model 15 - But is definitely made by Singer in 90's
