    Who do they think will pay that much for a machine that may or may not work?

    Yeah, everyone with a vintage/antique Singer thinks they have a gold mine....unless of course they know us here on the VSMS, and then we tell them the real facts!! LOL

    I don't think so. That is not an 1864 Singer. It is a model 27. I looked at the six digit serial number which is not very clear and the beginning number is 103 or 108. This machine was allotted January 1 1908. The D series were produced from 1908 to 1909.

    To them it says antique and that means dollars to some folks.

    Caroline, good catch! the machine is definitely not from the 1860's. And not worth what they are asking.
