    I hate it when they only post the picture of the back of the sewing machine or cover the feed dog area with a scrap of cloth. Or, post fuzzy pics, or post dark almost impossible to see what it is pics.

    Nope. I was just able to make out part of the serial number, D10883xx. That places the date of the sewing machine in 1908 and it would be a 27-4. And electrified??? I would deduct $1475 from that one.

    i was thinking the same thing...i have yet to see any machines surviving from 1864 in any useable condition today. I can dream though.

    http://dallas.craigslist.org/dal/atq/3088074886.html another one that might be fairly reasonable. Sure wish they'd show the machine though!

    I hate it when they post a nice pic of a machine and then put text me with offer... I don't text...

    I have noticed that the prices for treadles are going way up. I would love to know if they are really selling them. Some are in such bad shape. I was lucky to get a nice treadle in good shape for 90.00 and even that was high. But soon after I bought it the prices have been going up. How many are really being sold.
