    Serial number available upon request - why wouldn't they just put the serial number in the ad? Who is this poster; Gatekeeper of the serial numbers?? Must be related to my MIL. . .

    Glenn, I'm curious, are you sure it's a Singer 12? It says Foster Porter and Co London on the slide plates. It looks like there's A bobbin on the bobbin winder.

    At $270, there's a good chance I would probably pounce on it if I was there. It wouldn't be the first time a decision of mine meant macaroni and cheese for a couple of months straight. Heck, my basement is a testament to that at the moment!! I have a soft spot for those machines. I traded my Winselmann away and it's the only one I miss. Not that I advocate doing that, I'm just stating what I know I'm guilty of.

    The thing too is that you simply don't see those machines here. The Winselmann is the only one I've ever seen of that sort of vintage. The next oldest is the 1889 VS2 that I have here, and it's not nearly as uncommon as these machines.

    Not a giggler here either. I hope I'm not stepping on any toes posting this one:

    Stupid, lousy financial situation, otherwise I'd be interested. Is this a very early model 15?

    I was wrong it is not a singer 12, I am sorry. Yes I think I see a bobbin in the winder, being English the shuttle may be harder to get. I still think it would have a boat shuttle. It looks very much like the Frister and Rossman.

    After looking at it closer I am not sure who the maker is but as I said maybe Frister and Rossman. A transverse shuttle and that does usually mean a boat shuttle. Now I am really not, sure but this is a very nice machine. I am really sorry if I miss spoke earlier.

    No matter who made it, it's a great looking machine.

    It could be, or it may be one where the Singer 12 shuttle fits in it. The F&R machines are great machines too. If a person grabbed it, I would probably point them to Helen Howes in the UK for the shuttle.

    I agree it's so lovely to look at. The decals are in really good shape considering its age.
    I almost had DH convinced (we have a friend in Oregon who might have been willing to go get it and hold it til we came done next), but decided I didn't feel like kraft dinner for the next month.

    That would be my guess, yes. Precedessor to the 15. I loved the Singer logo on the bottom of the bed too.

    I have a F and R HC and it is one of my best machines. I use to piece and take to the Tenn Toga. I will check and see if a singer 12 boat shuttle will work in it. It looks very much like my machine.
