    I know the Lady bought this in 1995 from a Singer Store. It was for Her mother. She loved it and sewed on it for 7 years then she passed away. It was stored for 10 years in a beautiful home. It is in a old cabinet which I love. It sews great. I have a HA-1 15 clone and it looks cheap underneath the machine, but this one looks just like a singer and also has singer stamped under there. Charlee, you are right, it is a Singer just not a new one. I think they are beautiful. If I could find another one I probably would buy it. Suzi, would you like to sell that one, lol....would love to have it. Joy

    I hear and read so much on what they are ,, where they came from so on, it all gets a bit confusing.. someone else had one and said they also bought it from singer , my friends has singer on the bottom of the base, but it's not stamped in,, it is cast into teh base...

    now that I think about it teh S?N is stamped in,, where charlee says, it also has tag stick on tag,, with teh same s/n and has japan writtern on it along with the S/N..

    someone gave it to her over 20 yrs ago, and guess what ,, she had never opened the case , she had it NO BS,, The attic in her 2 story house. LOL.. pretty nice attic.. it's now in a treadle stand .. and getting used ..

    afew months ago an add ran 125 $ it was one of those but a hand crank, if it wasn't so far away I would have given her the 125 for it. The repo's I have seen , I have yet to see a dirty , dull finish on one...

    this add just started running , I drove right by this place two days ago and wonder what they have, LOL, if you really think about the fact, that it clean, you don't have to do aweeks worth of work on these ,, there price is not all that bad...

    Alot of the metal rods and thingies underneath have "Singer" cast into them - not to mention "Singer" is all over the machine. There is no doubt what-so-ever that this is a Singer. Hope more folks who have one of these will post so we can get an idea how many might be out there ........ with this economy we just might be seeing more and more of them hit the market.

    I'm sure the cabinet is a singer but not the head
    It is a reproduction not a clone, the clones aren't built as well as this one. I have a clone and it is made cheap. They are beautiful though. This one is smooth sewing and quiet.

    I do have an original # 15 in the original cabinet (belt missing). I dated it to around 1906 or 1912. Of course I can't find the paper now. I was just working on the cabinet today, refinishing it. The machine is another story !!! In pretty rough shape. But your's is very pretty, old or new.
