    Can you help me ID this beauty?

Size:  186.1 KBHi, the QB is enabling me!!!! I collected a 57 Singer 185J earlier this summer and now when a friend said she had three old machines to sell at her garage sale. I just said I want them - sight unseen!

    So this is the oldest of the three by patent date. Patents start with Sept 17, 1875 and end with Aug 2, 1887. There is no serial number that I can find anywhere. On the back of the machine faintly I see what looks in white to be an H and fainltly after than a ome... New Home? Underneath the machine there is a 2 stamped into the metal. Other than that I am stumped. Any ideas?

    Never met a scrap of fabric or vintage sewing machine I didn't like!
    Many a lost and lonely vintage machine has found a home with me, 26 and------ uh oh lost count, who is counting anyway!

    Looks very similar to what I just brought home. I just ordered a manual and 2 needles. Had to jimmy up an adapter yo wind a bobbin, I think what came with it were for Singer and too short by a bit.
