Singer 66 Red Eye Serial Number.
I snagged a Singer 66 Red Eye on eBay last weekend. The serial number is 889955 which according to the Singer site puts this machine at 1872. Were these machines even manufactured then? Is there another place I can look for a serial number to confirm the age?
The seller did not mislead me. He noted the issue with the serial number but thought maybe it was just a badging mistake by Singer?
So, oh wise vintage machine owners, help me solve this mystery.

Pictures of the Singer Red Eye
The base of the machine, underneath is stamped with SIMANCO USA 16. I took a bunch of pictures so let me know if you need any picture in particular.
