    Your Super deluxe precision sewing machine is likely a Japanese clone of the Singer 15, although without a photo it could be anything. I have an "ElectroGrand" precision deluxe sewing machine that is a clone of the Singer 15, and it's a pretty machine. They are not rare, and you make no mention of attachments, bobbins, or bobbin case. AS for selling price, you can sell it for whatever someone is willing to pay.

    I agree with jlm, probably a Japanese 15 clone, which are good machines overall...but want to say don't expect to sell it for a lot. "Most" people don't appreciate the older machines, and there are actually millions of them out there. Not rare, not actually "collectible" except by a few weirdos like us! Price depends so much on condition, what attachments come with, etc. Do you have a picture or two?

    I recently sold a Japanese clone on CL. I got $25 and it took me 2 weeks to sell it and 3 people flaking on me, so about 5 hours of my time. Just an FYI!

    If it is a cute/different color, it may be easier to sell at a higher price. You can check your local CL and other ads to get comps on prices, and see what the market is doing in your area.

    I ended up giving both of mine to Goodwill because they wouldn't sell locally. Always had trouble with the bobbins and my repair guy said they just aren't good machines. Hope you have better luck.

    I've noticed the bobbins on some of them don't want to stay in the machine. Very frustrating.
    NEVER let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.
