Can anyone tell me where to find the serial # on the 301 sewing machine? Just picked one up at a yard sale for $10, is that a good price?

Yes that's a fantastic price. Don't know where to find the number though..

"Singer did not keep records of actual serial number dates of manufacture for the 301 and 301A as they did with early Singer models. They only used a batch of Serial Numbers, NA-1951, NB-1956, NC-1961. What this means is we must gather our own information to come up with a serial number year of issue. With data I collected over the years from owners of the Singer 301, 301A, 401A, 403A, 500A and 503A I was able to create a year of issue of when our 301 and 301A was issued or manufactured."

got thisinformation from the attached link:

The # is on the bottom of my machine about under the needle area. Turn the machine upside down. You'll love your little machine.
