    Looks like a 99 to me...definately not a model 15-*.
    Great buy for a buck!! Look at that pretty burled wood in that cabinet...you're going to love it!

    The face plate on a 99 is flat, on a 66 its rounder like in the picture that Tlstick showed us.
    Here's a picture of my 99.

    It's most definitely a 66... Same as the one in my avatar, only mine is a little older and a treadle. Clean it up and use it! They were the best machines! If I'm not mistaken, they were the longest-produced model Singer ever made.

    Congratulations! I've never been at an auction where the starting bid for something like that was just a dollar!

    What a wonderful deal. You beat me by 5 dollars. I got a 301A at an auction for $6.00. It had not even had a spool of thread sewn thru it. I had a cabinet waiting at home for mine. You will love it.

    I would love one of those machines as they remind me of the NEW handi quilter sit down combo/setup.
    The harp is large, the stitch divine...the table big...no need to buy a "new" machine.
