    After reading posts for a few weeks now, I thought I'd dust off the machine I learned to sew on, and I used to "teach" the neighbor kids on, and taught my son to sew on. G3836020 - Nov 17, 1914. I have to ask my mom it if was a family piece or if she purchased it. I have all the parts but haven't even opened the case in close to 15 years. Now that I'm sewing again I will definitely be getting this back in working order.
    Decals, case, and machine are all in average condition. These old machines are so very lovely - works of art in themselves.

    That is one of my favorite sewing machine models. I just recently got one myself, a 1920 66. I doubt if today's electronic machines will still be working as well when they are 90-100 years old!

    I recently bought a 1922 treadle 66 Red Eye like yours - they are beautiful. Have fun sewing with her again.
