    Oscar,

    Welcome to the forum. A picture of the front and the case with any accessories would help.

    That machine is a post WW II Class 15 clone. They were imported by the millions and although not overly collectable are very good machines. Technically it is not an antique either. To be an antique it has to be 100 years old or older.
    If the machine is complete, in excellent working order, and has a good case I've seen them run anywhere from 30 to 65.00. The colored ones seem to go for more. Add in a complete set of attachments and the price sometimes goes up. It's fickle really.

    If complete but in the normal condition with a broken case and no attachments perhaps $25.00. It all depends what someone is willing to pay for it.

    Your location will also have a bearing on the price. Some areas they sell for more, some for less.

    I have one just like it that I bought at a local thrift shop for $45.00. It came in a blue and white case. It sews so-o-o smoothly!

    When you list it for sale, it's best to take a photo of the front of the machine. It's sort of like taking a photo of the back of a sofa... or the back of a refrigerator... or the back of a washing machine.... and then listing it for sale.

    Hi Oscar,

    It looks very similar to one I am cleaning right now, also Blue. Just purchased for $15.00 at church sale and is in a cabinet. Mine says Universal Electric Sewing Machine Super Deluxe. Made by Standard Sewing Equipment Corp. Japan. Still looking for a date of birth. Only numbers on mine are stamped into the bottom: F/009 or F1009.

    I have one I found for $15 and it works great. A little heavy for me to move around, but I love it.
