    My DH and I look at Featherweights on E-Bay from time to time. Today, one is good condition with a case and accessories sold for only $211.38 with $17.00 shipping. The beginning of the week we also saw one (and couldn't believe it), a 1962 in good condition with a case and accessories including a buttonholer, sell for a whopping $1,225.00. You just can't tell about these little darlings. I don't think I would sell mine for any amount of money.

    Looks to be in excellent condition. What a great find...lucky you!

    You can look up on line using the serial number, to find out what year she was manufactured

    Oh my goodness........what a beauty! I acquired a FW fairly recently, DH is in the process of learning more about them, and is planning to get her ready. She sews great, but I just prefer to get everything "eagle-eyed" before making her work. I love owning this wonderful piece of history. Hope you enjoy your FW.
