    $4,999.

    A July, 1927 Singer 128 La Vencedora, electric, in a bentwood case. $4,999. 110 watchers. No, really.

    So are you asking us something, or what. I'm not sure I understand what response you are looking for. Sorry

    Both original screw drivers are included. That might explain the asking price.

    screwdrives from this era aren't that hard to find. very hard to find the ring type that was put in the very early puzzle boxes.

    Seems whenever a machine gets posted at a high asking price, lots and lots of people "watch" out of curiosity.

    I am! I've noticed that lots of people do that, too.

    My husband shops eBay constantly for car stuff and vintage advertising items. He says that it seems like there is always one listing for something that is outrageously priced. Maybe they're hoping to snag someone who just doesn't know? I don't really know, but he says it happens in all categories

    Since https://www.quiltingboard.com/vintag...g-t174801.html was closed maybe a new thread should be started.

    Some suggested titles:

    Somebody has not done their homework.

    She closes here tirade with threats of her own. Hilarious, is right. "A portion will go to two MN charities"....her own.
    ebay needs to pay her a visit. Her cheese has slipped from her cracker, or should I say her raisins have fallen out of the box.
