    Can't figure this one out at all, look at the date and time of the event, and just the general write up...

    That first one has me stumped - can't find the serial number in ISMACS - only interested because it's a "silver".
    I like the "matching stool" makes me wonder what makes someone think they match? Maybe they both have wood on them? I do have the stool that would be the mate for that style cabinet (also sold by Singer).

    Ismacs says:

    [TD]1924[/TD]
    [TD]- 1936

    The stool matches because they're both perceived gold mines...

    I think the frigid temps around here are affecting this guys brain....


    I have a 1925 Singer Sewing machine for sale (see pics). The minimum value for this vintage begins at about $400 on ebay. I'm entertaining offers over $200.

    Craigslist. No pic, just 22,000 worth of sewing machine, so they say. Guess that's more incentive to get mine running! *headdesk*
