    I just got my first one on eBay for (get ready) $113. She came yesterday, is a 1947, excellent condition, even the case is perfect. She's got such a funny bunch of treasures in the case, I am going through the time warp with them! I love to see all of the things people keep in their sewing cases--a key labeled with a note stating that "I don't know what this key is for." There's a folded sheet of paper with a machine needle sticking through it. On it is written-machine needle 80/16-bent. I am just having a ball going through this stuff. Now I'm going to give her an oil bath and spa treatment and a good meal of grease and we'll be on our way. Her name is Emma.

    mimibug,
    What a find! I hope I find one like that someday - my budget is $150, which makes it harder. Congrats!

    I hope you can find one, Ellietow! I've been looking for a year. There is one locally that the lady has reduced to $200, but when she sent me the email yesterday to tell me that she had reduced it, I told her that mine had just come eBay and was wonderful, but if she decided to reduce hers some more, to let me know. It's a 1951 centennial edition. I am still going to keep looking for one for my stepmother, but want to find another one in the same condition an price range as the one I got!
