    What would you expect to pay for each one? Just a ball park figure... so I can file it away in my head JUST in case i'm as lucky as Jan at falling into wonderful deals/steals. lol
    Here is a site that will help you identify singers decals. The owl, according to Needlebar was only used on Model 15 between 1894 and 1898. The RAF was also used on Model 15's between 1934 -1960 +. The price you'd expect to pay for these would be no more than any vintage machine - depends on what shape the machine/cabinet are in? Of course, the Model 15 with an owl in good shape would be considerably more, due to the fact that that machine was only produced for such a short time, than a Model 15 with the RAF.

    I wish you lived close enough to come and take some HOME with you.
    I do! Any chance you have a 201? Preferably old enough to have a scroll plate.

    I bought this off CL this weekend for $40. The year is 1959 and she was made in S.C. Do you think I got a good deal.

    I would have bought it for that. Looks to be in good condition. Have you sewn with her yet?

    I'd have bought it! I absolutely covet a LBOW 301 or the 401. I'd have bought that one even for the cabinet, it looks good!
