    Still expensive even if they moved the decimal a place to the left.

    "Antique Singer" was all they could come up with?

    If you are going to ask some ridiculous price, at least do a better job of trying to sell it. You have to get great-grandma in there somewhere.

    Here is a pseudo-giggle, more of a question: This hand crank here, this would be only one stitch per crank, right?

    I am not interested in buying it, just interestedin learning more about hand cranks for a possible re-furbishing soon :-)

    Ooh, very pretty decals.

    I think in this case it is just that the person does not know any better - they probably do not really know what 'treadle' means.
