    I can tell you right now what it's worth - PRICELESS!

    But, you might need a price for insurance reasons. I bet Lostn51 would have an idea.

    Neat machine and wonderful memories for you.

    look up your serial # on the singer website. Looks just like mine except it looks better kept than mine was. I bought mine on ebay. Treat her good!

    I have one that is very similar. I don't know what it is worth, but it doesn't matter. I have my laptop on top of it right now. It is in my living room. My dad fixed it for me. He used to fix my grandma's. He said the leather belts have been known to last 100 years. The belt on mine was cracked and stretched. He opened the staple, trimmed a little bit off of the end of the belt, replaced the staple and off I went. I love mine.

    OMG that's just the one I want!! I've been searching for one with the lovely decals in good condition!
    What a treasure from your Gram!!!!!!!!! :D
    ENJOY!!!!!!!!!!
    PS. Actually, that's even more elaborate than the one I want. I want the Red-Eye. I forgot the name of yours but it's much rarer than the Red-Eye, I believe.
    Billy or Charlee will know!! :D

    I only have the cabinet, just like that one, from my mother. The head got thrown away, due to brother putting vegetable oil in it, years ago. I have my embroidery machine sitting on top of the cabinet now. I love the style with the drawers and flip compartment in the middle for little items. I know you will enjoy your Gramma's machine.
