Default Has anyone ever seen a Singer 66-16 w/back tack?

Singer 99's with back tack I've seen. The book with it says it is a 66-16, model # places it circa 1946. Before today I'd never seen a 66 with back tack:

Come to think of it, the stitch length lever on a 66 I don't think I've ever seen before either. Maybe I'm having a senior moment though (happens a lot lately).

I own a couple of them.

I'd say the 66-16 is about the most common machine I find locally.

They all have White levers -even the godzilla finish one.

I've one. The white stitch lever is chipped. I planned to paint it black until I saw they all have white levers, never black.

I've had a couple of the 66-16s and now have three of the 66-18s. A most handy machine.

Some times they come in a very nice domed case.
