Default crinkle or not

Is this machine considered a "crinkle" featherweight or just a bad paint job? I think it was made in 1937. It runs and has it's bobbin case intact. It looks like it may have a new cord put on her. Thinking of selling her, but not sure. I sold my little mint green one, and have sort of regretted it. How much do you think I could/should sell for? Thanks for feedback. Have been looking at the crinkle ones on another thread. Are they worth as much as one that is black shiny paint?

No, it's just crinkled paint, the clear coat is failing. Probably from years of sitting in a hot environment like an attic at some point in its life. The crinkle FWs aren't black they're a charcoal grey like the other crinkle finish Singers and don't have all the decals.

No not crinkle just crazing from extreme heat and cold just as Oly said.

Not crinkle but you should still sell it to the ones that love the FW.
