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?

"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.
