    That was very nice of her. Now you have a spare. I have an extra one that hubby gave me. That is why I do not worry if my Singer ever "takes sick".

    That is a badged machine, meaning this certain company made machines and put whomever's name on it that wanted to sell them.

    I need you to get me the JA or JC numbers that are on the machine and post them. These should be cast on the bottom and you might have another set stamped on the side of the machine by the plate with the model number.

    I am currently doing research on the Japanese machines (The model 15's to be exact) on how to date them and to see who and where they were manufactured. The JA and JC numbers help me alot in finding out the original manufacturer but it is up in the air about dating them.

    But if I was to guess your machine would be in the mid 60's to the early to mid 70's.

    It looks like the ones we used in Home - Ec. Have you contacted the Spiegel company for any info they may have?

    I was given a Singer when I graduated from college in the late 60's and it was the same color - I should have kept it, but I wasn't as smart as I am now!!!!

    A lot of times those older machines work better than the new ones. What a great friend!

    I need to keep track of you for that "new" machine a lady gave me called a "Fleetwood" ... When Christmas is over, maybe?

    That is so neat. I love the plate listing what needle to use with different size threads.

    It looks like a Singer I had from the sixties. It had a case lid.

    It has to be from 1970/71 as I still have my first machine and it has the same print on the case. The machine looks almost like mine too. Mine is a Penncrest made exclusively for J C Penneys. Your's I bet was made exclusively for Speigel but by the same manutacturer. Back in the day J C Penneys and Speigle were top mail order catalogue companies along with Sears.
