    Does anyone know what I have or direct me to a site to find out. I went to one site but the number I have wasn't there..thanks for any help.

    Yes, there is a wonderful Yahoo group for vintage Singer machines. You can search on Yahoo for "Vintage Singers" and it should come up, and you have to join.

    I have a machine similar to this in the same case! Only mine is a 66 with a crackle finish paint job! She's beautiful! My husband bought her for me and inside the case is stamped Where a lady about 15 miles from me bought it in 1956! I use it all the time my husband only had to oil it and it works like a dream!

    Oh my gosh....what memories the photos brought. This is the same machine my mother had when I was a child and she made all my dresses on it. Later I used it to make clothes on. How I wish she had kept it. It got damaged in a move and the insurance paid her out. She bought new machine and was never happy with it. Hope you fix her up and keep it. It you decide to sell, let me know first.

    Do you think maybe the difference is with the date mfg?
    I love my little 99. If you do the google seach using "Images" at the top, you may see one like yours, then look at that website for more info. Can you post a picture of the needle plate area?

    Your picture seems to show a typical 99 slide-plate on the left, should be the typical square style...saw them on ebay for $9-$12 + shipping.

    99 slide-plate goes in from the right

    I just purchased a 99K a few weeks ago, at the "Red Barn".. and they gave me some yarn,(free) for my work for the NICU at our local hospital, and 2 local nursing homes..... I haven't checked it out completely yet, but it was a bargain at $6.00 YES ! I have a collection of machines,(I like my 'toys'..) as well as a pleating machine,(for smocking) Husquevarna for 'fancy work'.. a serger....knitting machine... best of all , is the Singer 319W that I purchased in 1957.. (even has 'cams' for fancy work..) Diana O. Question....who will get my 'goodies' when I gone? I'm 81 now !
