    I've only seen pics of those machines. I'd love to see one in person. I'd love to get my hands on a new never used one even more. As if I needed another machine .........

    my friend has that very same machine,, ofcourse all I know is what I read on the net... according to THEY, if it does have the word The in front of singer it's a clone/reproduction.

    In photo's only I have seen three different Sphinx decals used, this one, one where it's a females head green back ground, one with a males head, but he's looking at you

    If I find one, I'd buy it without blinking a eye.. I'm a long ways from being a purist, if I get a machine that so bad it needs paint it will come back looking like a Bug..

    Joe . when you do see one you'll be shocked at how good they do look, some how I don't think way back when a singer ever looked this nice...

    John,

    I've seen some really almost perfect Singers and I will say they did look that good .... way back when.

    It's just that most of them have been used a lot rather than stored in a cool dry place, and show it.

    Joe

    I have one just like Mattie...she came in a box with all the info and the prefix was "CH"...for China! But, she's pretty and I don't care where she came from, she's at home with me now! And you're right, the decals are a little off but they are pretty as well.

    That's a Singer reproduction made in the 1980s in Taiwan, one of the "NL-" machines.

    I know as a Kid I saw new singers, but who cared back then, now I really wonder what a new black and gold machine did look like ,, as far as the dept in the color and sprakle in the gold

    the facts are we're not collecting these because of who made them, but the joy they bring to the eye..

    Mine is NL-K 8017090 and I was told (by a Singer rep) that it was manufactured in the mid-90's. Supposedly the "N" prefix signifies "Nostalgia series". Enjoyed your blog, Vintage.Singers --- lot'sa interesting information in there.
