    Nope, not a 201. That's a 66. Most likely a 66-16. It is a full sized machine. The AH won't tell much as they made lots of machines with that prefix. Need the whole number if you have it. I can't read it from the pic.

    It's missing the slide plate of course, but other wise it's in nice shape. I don't see a power cord, so if you go look at it make sure it's there.

    Hopefully the slide plate is there somewhere too although they are easy to get.

    AH479497 is the serial number. The machine has slightly concave bobbins and it DOES have the slide plate.

    It didn't have the power cord, but the foot control is there. I have a power cord from a 15-91 so that's no problem. Can't sew on both at the same time anyway!

    Poor baby is bone dry. I went ahead and bought it, the table is in wonderful condition. The bobbin area is different from any machine I've seen, very interesting! It's calling to me so I need to get off this computer! I'll hunt down a manual when I figure out which machine it is.

    Thanks for the info Joe, narrowing it down to the 66 helps me head in the right direction.
