Welcome to the Quilting Board!
"This is a Canadian made White Sewing Machine Company, Model 464, with table from the 1950's.
We hate to see it go, but we no longer have the room for it any longer and hope that someone who knows it's value will take good care of it. "
I like to think I have an idea of the "value" of machines of that vintage, and $300 isn't it....

Did they make that style machine in the 50s? Looks more recent to me. Of course I've been wrong before. . . Oh its the table that is from the 50s - that I believe, as we had one like that when I was growing up.
"The sewing machine seems to be in very good condition, but I am unable to confirm if it works."
I saw this yesterday http://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/richm...ine/1020945186
I emailed the advertiser with "that's not a 502k". He replied "Yes it is". I actually laughed out loud! Had to tell him, though, "Sorry, but it's just that it is obvious it's not a 502k and I thought I'd let you know. I was just trying to help you but you're so certain that this 201 is a 502, so my mistake"

I always cringe when I see a fabric pin catcher wrapped around the arm of a sewing machine 'cause I've seen what the pins do to the paint underneath. Still, if shipping to the U.S. weren't prohibitive, I would certainly give $30 for a 201k.
