I believe it is missing the stitch regulator lever
It is...and I'd buy it anyway, but pay less than the asking price. It's a pretty machine and easy fix.

It looks too much like a 115 to me just by looking at what few features I see. They are sometimes listed as a 15 but are more rare and most of them come with the Tiffany Gingerbread decals.

Not much but the stitch regulator is different and the direction of the bobbin case I think. I will go back and look at what the differences are but I know the stitch length regulator is the easiest way to tell.

I just purchased the same machine. ...So what's the verdict? 15, or 66?

It's definitely not a 66. The tensioner is on the left side of the machine.

It's either a 15 or a 115. Either way, your machine will take class 15 bobbins and standard 15x1 needles. (also called HAx1, 2020, 130, 705 and several other names)

The free online manual for the 15-30 will be close enough to help you get your machine sewing, even if it's a 115. :)

Since the decal nor the cabinet appears pristine I would probably pass or pay $45. It is pretty though and its design appears less comon.

No, the take up lever you are looking for sticks out to the left side, with the tension dial. This distinguishes a model 15 singer from all others...

I'm sure it's been posted already, but this is a model 15 with gingerbread decalling.

I think it's a Singer 115 with Tiffany decals. You're in Canada right? They seem to pop up here. I have two with Gold Wing decals. Here's a picture of one of mine. They are such nice machines!
