    You found a Singer 128 and there were 10,000 of them allotted on October 11 1927. Unless it is in perfect condition I would hold out for another one. But that is a fair price for one that would look like new.

    Oh and the machine was made here in the States in Elizabethport, New Jersey

    PM lostin51. He is our resident expert on old machines.

    Edited to say that Billy posted his answer while I was writing my post.
