    in my area the further you go from all original the cheaper the price - that red one would sell for under $200 around here.

    I can't believe there are so-o-o-o many of them out there! Not like its a really rare item to be priced like that!

    I've actually seen some repaints for sale at some CA shows for that price range. I say for sale, because no one was buying that I saw.

    maybe the husband said "sell those extra machines" and the wife wanted to keep them. "But honey, I put an ad on CL, don't know why they aren't selling."

    No doubt!! Geesh!.. I only see the 221's... I don't see the 222.

    I know the 222's go for alot since there are so few of them out there. They're the ones that have the removable bed so you can say sew a sleeve on.

    It amazes me how things get out of hand!!
    I've been noticing recently that the 301's are going higher than when I got mine. Anyone else notice that?

    Is that the original color of the machine? I never knew they made red ones.

    I don't see a 222K...I think they must have the wrong machine pictured...
    If you look at the background of the pictures...this looks like it might be a dealer selling these... It is definitely a store front.

    I think they must be smokin some of that funny stuff, if they think we are going to plunk down that kinda money.

    I saw one in a quilt shop that had been painted purple, which is the color of my Alma Mater and when I asked about the price the quoted me $2,500.....because it was a "custom" paint job. Geeze Louise is all I can say , it's not like it's a sports car. :-D

    lovely machine but i would be the one "smoking some of that funny stuff " to pay that amt of money!! Custome paint job... i can see paying $400 but not a bit more! The red one i can tell it's made from the mid 30-40's . The black after that by the scroll face.

    I think one of the gentlemen on this forum does custom paint jobs for the featherweights.

    I just got one in a beautiful custom green paint job for less than many standard featherweights.

    I also got the most awesome centennial machine from England, complete with box of attachments and top tray, for under $500. I swear, it is one of the most beautiful examples of a Featherweight I have ever seen and is easily a 10 for condition.

    My 222k also came from England. The price was about half what it would have cost me here and the condition was still pretty good.

    I still regret not having gone to $1,000 for the one true white, absolutely immaculate machine I have seen, but no way would I go any higher.
