    The taller ones don't seem to be as valuable. The short ones though are in demand.

    Most of mine are too. I bought one of the shorter ones when I first started collecting, and then I "found" one in the cabinet for the 403, and bought the machine because of it. OK,... I was already humming and hawing over the machine, and that sealed the deal. Both of them live in featherweight cases now, which is probably part of why they're more collectible than the taller ones.

    I like the tall cans just fine. I got them out and lined them up to look at - one is for Pfaff, 2 Singer 30 and 39 cents and one generic with no price on it.

    Tammi, I've been known to buy a machine for its accessories and not the machine. DH just shakes his head when I tell him why. I figure don't ask if you don't want to know.
    FYI: all of mine are tall, too.

    I figure it's sort of a variation of what they say on Treadleon. Buy the machine for the cabinet. The machines are so plentiful, a person can mix and match as they choose. Heck, I'm not sure how many of the machines I've "released" in my catch and release program have even left here in the same cabinet / case they arrived in, but I don't think it's many. The 403 didn't leave with the oil can either.

    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.
