Default LIFE brand 1954 Special Deluxe

Hi all,
I am trying to find some information on a vintage 1954 LIFE brand Special Deluxe manufactured in Japan.

A google search turns up no information, could anyone provide some insight into this machine and what it could possible be worth?

Ive attached some images for reference.

Sometimes, the machines made in Japan have a JA number and/or JC number on them. Many machines of that era had many different names for the same machine. Is it a straight stitch only or does it have zigzag capabilities?

Is 1954 the model number or is when it was purchased?

There are several threads here about Japanese machines-

We like pictures. In order to post pictures on Quilting Board, you will probably need to reduce or compress the picture to a file size that is smaller than 2MB. How to post images can be found at https://www.quiltingboard.com/attach...020-01-17-.pdf
Don't forget to scroll over to the far right to find and click on the "Upload" button.

I have found that only the big red "Reply" button or "Quote" work to give me the paper clip icon to work for adding pictures.

Some additional info regarding reducing images at post #4 and images for the scroll and upload button can be found at #5 of quilt block ID?

Another way to post pictures can be found at 2021/2022, 2.5 Birthday Swap
And how to use an ipad to post pictures can be found at Uploading photos

Or simply - Make sure pictures are smaller than 2MB
Click on red "Reply" button
Click on the paper clip icon
Click browse - choose picture/s. (only 5 allowed per post)
Once they show up as being loaded, Scroll over to the right side and click on "Upload"
After the pictures show up as being attached, you can close that window and go back to the screen to finish posting your post.
