    Oh I'd get the black one they are so much better than the white ones, I have 5 white ones and 4 black ones, hands down the black ones are the best. I bought the white ones before I knew, and I wanted 3 for my Great Nieces and 1 for my GD. I have one for myself but love my lil black beauties best.
    Plus the black one is a centennial......the case has it's key and is in great shape and you get the attachments...... :thumbup: :thumbup:
    Everything looks good with the white one I guess it should just be what you like best.
    BLACK ONE MORE FOR YOUR MONEY

    I badly want a white one, but not at that price. I would choose the black one.

    whats your decor where you sew
    What color stands out the best
    actually what normally is your liking white or black
    The white is a beautiful machine but as ladies are saying here the black one is more functional.
    Hey and price difference Do you really want to cost the person buying this for you 200 more dollars just to have a pretty or functional
    Up to you

    Since they were both made in Singer's early days, either one. I like black myself. Singer has been bought out several years ago and it's not like it used to be, stay away from those.

    I have both a white and a black, I would go for the black, the black one is slightly better in performance than the white.

    The black one is a real beauty and has the original key, which I understand is rare. I went and looked at it and ended up bidding on another black one...didn't want to step in on yours..:) I guess I didn't know EBAY had them at, what I think, is a reasonable price. I may finally get one also. My brother just paid me back a loan so, does that justify it??? Now, I'm all excited!!!!

    I'm partial to black. The decals show up so nicely. That price is good if it's in good condition. You don't find them much cheaper unless they need work.

    I like the black best-especially since it is a Centennial model.

    Neither one. Have you considered buying a new sewing machine. They are more reasonable than $300/$500 they are asking for here. Check out Amazon.com for sewing machines or Wal-mart, JoAnn's has reasonable price Singers.
