    I'd buy it for that price. It is a Japanese 15 - it is a clone of the Singer 15. Here is a link for more info and plenty of discussion. Will the REAL 15 clone please stand up
    and another link for one I cleaned up - Janie Doe, the 15 Clone - make over

    It would be the "Occupied Japan" marking that would make me go after it... things were only marked that way for a short time.

    If the sewing machine was not so far away I would be on it in a minute.

    I have a question.....did Singer make any sewing machines in Japan? My husband said he saw a Singer machine that had "made in occupied Japan "written on it......He swears it was a Singer brand..
