    I have this Singer Machine from my grandmother. I think it is from 1918 due to some googling. Any thoughts about it? It is serial number G5985715.

    It's a Singer 66 Redeye. Not sure about any other info. I have the same machine and cabinet but mine is from around 1923.

    btw it looks like yours is in excellent condition. Mine is dirty and not really faded but I need to replace a couple of parts. My cabinet is half refinished. The previous owners stained it a super dark brown, almost black, color. It was free though so I didn't complain. lol

    I have no idea and no information to give you. I just wanted to say that she's a beauty and you're very fortunate to have her.

    I looked it up with your help and it looks like it is a 1910 model 66. I dont even know if it works or not. Anyone know if it is worth anything?
