Looks to be in prefect condition. I've never seen one before (that I recall!)

Lucky you. I have one like yours but not a case. It is in a card board sew handy box. Does it in fact use a bobbin? Mine does a chain stitch. I also have a black one. Recently a great grand daughter came to visit and we had a sewing day. She tried the sew handy but soon progressed to an adult machine. lol
I am happy for your.

Yes, it has the c clamp original also. I just ordered a manual for a #20 on ebay. I have been reading about it, and now know it doesn't have a bobbin. Still have to find a needle screw. It looks like it is brand new. Just some surface pitting on the chrome parts.
