    I picked up an older Singer at an estate sale for $50.00. The serial number is AJ304862. According to the singer site It was made in 1949. When I requested a manual I got one that indicated the machine is a 15. But 15 what? How do you tell?

    You paid a good price for it and you will love it when you start using it regularly. If it has the potted motor (looks like an old style pot next to the handwheel) it is a 15-91. If it has the motor on the rear that can be removed it could be a number of sub classes. The sub classes are from the small improvements the engineers made during the course of the models run.

    I know that this is clear as mud but that is the basic gist of it.

    The name of that Singer is '15'..... There were many of them made and each model they added some number. Usually you hear people call them a 'Class 15-whatever'....

    Thanks everyone for helping me identify my Singer.

    FYI: It is a 15-91.
