    I assume it is a single letter prefix, but when I go to that page, I do not see anything for 000. Perhaps I'm looking for the wrong number?

    Thank you for your help!

    By the way, she came with a lot of bobbins.
    When you click on the singer link that you posted, then single letter prefix, now click on the red-highlighted 'G-Series' which is about half way down the page on the right hand side. The pdf file will save to your computer, open it and on the 3rd line down is the numerical range....

    G- 40001 90000 15 50000 January 8 1910

    So it's a Class 15, with 50,000 serial numbers allocated on 8th January 1910 at the Elizabeth New Jersey factory.

    'Tis a little confusing at first but after a few tries you'll get the hang of it!! LOL

    Hope this helps?

    I came up with
    A 66 born may 28 1923

    All the way down on the list is the double 0's

    You and me both. Imagine being a telecommuter and avid member of this site... Luckily I am retiring in 6 days and counting.
    Oh yeah, my full-time job is at home, and it is sooo tempting to flip over here and check stuff out. :)

    :oops: I didn't even think to keep scrolling down! You'd think they'd start with that first! OK. So she is a little bit younger. Cool.

    Now all I need to do is find a manual!

    None of them came home with me...but another "Little Girl" pincushion doll, like the one with the blue dress on my shelf, only this one has a pink dress and a scissor holder...and a covered wagon pincushion..
    oH

    Oh, Charlee, I may have said this before but It bears saying again!! How in the world do you find all these machines? :((

    Have you posted a pic of your machine? I would like to see what mine is supposed to look like. I have no decals, and it looks like someone painted it with a brush. I think it was a treadle that someone electrifed.

    I just got a reply to a Craigslist ad for a singer treadle base with a board top --made into a table--asking the price, and the guy wrote $200-firm. Wow, these folks are crazy. I can buy several treadle sewing machines that are complete for that money. Guess he bought it somewhere expensive cause it was "cute" And this is a moving sale..... he will be moving it or donating it, cause I don't think anyone will pay that price around here.

    I don't understand either. I think they get their prices off what they think sold on Ebay a couple years ago. Reality seems to be they are only worth what someone will actually pay. That doesn't seem to be very much around here these days. Some days I find them so cheap makes me hurt to think about it. If they don't sell are they ending up in the land fill? I've rescued several from the trash lately.

    Thanks to this thread, the machine my brother gave me 12 years ago is up and running. I've quickly been spoiled by this 15-30, 1941 stitching marvel.

    When my brother asked if his friend could buy one of my treadles, I said no, here's where I draw the line (its hard times for us).

    I've got everyone looking for these machines for me, since I'm a fair mechanic, it'll be fun fixing them. And who knows, a FW might show up. Sarah weights 29 pounds and I hurt from lugging her to quilt group.

    Thanks to all of you who take the time to post and answer questions.
