    Congratulations on machine, you will love it. I got my 4th vintage singer today, a 99k made same month and year as yours. I use all my vintage machines, they sew much better than my newer ones.

    Sounds like yours is a 15-??. Can you post a pic? One of the best is a 15-91.

    Nope your machine is not a 99. 99's are stubbier than the 15's. Yours is probably a 15-91 (I'm no expert) Check out this website: http://www.sandman-collectibles.com/...r-machines.htm . There will be step by step instructions to identify your specific machine. You definitely have a 15 but which model of 15 is the question. They are great machines--I have 2!

    I just found out yesterday the machine I inherited from my DMIL is a 15-91. It has a scroll face plate as opposed to striated but haven't found out if that increases the value or not. It's a sweetheart machine and for 47 yrs, I was the only other person allowed to sew on it. Mine is in a cabinet.

    You will sooooo enjoy using it. Man, FREE is soooo good.
