    Confused About Machine

    Howdy,
    I read alot on here but I am really not a talker so I never post. I however am completely stumped by a few machines and figured I could go to no other place to find some knowledgable people who may be able to point me in the right direction.

    I have a German Singer Sewing Machine with a Cooper Plate on the front. The Singer seal is actually not a medal medallian but instead stamped on and written in German. The serial number starts with a C and according to what I can find on dating was made circa 1929. Now I would call it a 201 as I already have a one of those and they look identical but the dating would suggest otherwise. I am completely stumped I can find no information on German Machines to begin with let alone with a Cooper Front Plate. I was hoping someone might know something or at least a direction in which to fly. I also have one with some sort of dial and a few others that are weird, but this is my favorite.

    Welcome to the Quilting Board.


    What's a "Cooper Front Plate"? Yes indeed a photo would help a bunch.

    First and foremost - welcome to the quilt board - I see this is your first post, hope it won't be your last! If you could post pictures of the machines, I am sure someone here can help you. You mention one with a dial. Is it a sliver dial on the bed of the machine, next to the bobbin winder tension? If so, it may be a 101 - but again cannot tell without a picture or the serial #. Post the serial #'s if you can't post a pic.

    If the sewing machine was made in Germany circa 1929 then there will not be any records for it. Those records were lost during WWII. I agree with the others, we need to see some pictures to help you further. Welcome to the Vintage Sewing Machine thread.

    Sorry try as I might, every time I tried to upload the photo last night. It kept telling me "upload fail". Same thing this morning. So I got a photobucket account and am trying to do it from that. Still having trouble. Any ideas

Size:  518.4 KB Got it hope this helps... This is the German with the Cooper Plate, I made sure to get a picture with the serial number for help.

    I am also going to post pics of the other German which is a treadle, but I know what that is because it was tagged. It was supposedly a rare 15... but the treadle iron is brown which is cool.

    I am also going to post pics of the dial machine, but thanks to Linda I am sure what she described is what it is.

    The only other machine I am unsure of is a New Cottage, and I just simply can't find any info about them.

    Other than that I think I have figured out all the rest of the machines.... or simply got rid of them.

    Your pictures are still to large to upload to QB. Go to the main QB page. At the bottom is the QB Help Center. Search for Uploading Photos. Photos have to be a certain size to upload to QB. You can also change the size of pics you have already taken. Somewhere I have the notes on how to do it on your computer.If you are using a digital camera, change the image mode to 640x480​. That will make all future pics you take Internet ready. We are here to help you. When the QB format changed last year many of us had the same problems with pictures that you are.
