    Oh how nice. I hope you find the info you need. I know there is a thread on here for those that have old machines. Perhaps someone there could point you in the right direction?

    Well, it looks like it was commissioned in 1920, but since
    Singer has removed the beautifully functional lookup for serial numbers, I can't tell you what it is.

    If you post pictures, someone will be able to tell you. :)

    Lucky you! I have a 66-1 and a 15-89 and love them both. I use my treadles before any other machine! Hope you got attachments with it because 66-1's have back mounted feet and are a little hard to find.

    Google "Singer Manufcturing" + that number. I inherited one with a G number also. Mine was made in Elizabeth, NJ, about 1910. There are charts with model numbers that tell you when they were issued. Wish I knew someone in central Texas who could restore both the machine and the cabinet.

    I'm 54 yo now but remember fond memories of learning to sew on my great grandmothers old tredle machine. It purred like a kitten.

    Congrats on your new treadle sewing machine.

    If your sewing machine is a Singer brand, you can download a certificate and find out a little history on the year your sewing machine was born. You will need to provide them with the Serial number, it is worth checking out.
