Default New Toy! Elgin 2468

I just bought an Elgin 2468 at at Estate Sale today. According to a seller on a youtube video, it was made by Husqvarna. According to Patternreview, it's made by Koyo of Japan. Someone also posted somewhere that White put out an identical machine with the same model number.

Mine did not come with any accessories. How could I find out about the cams? (a user on patternreview says they are the same cams that some Kenmore machines use) I have a photo of the ones that it uses. There are also some on ebay right now that say they are type W for an Elgin Dressmaker. I've emailed the seller, but she may not know.

So, the question is, how do you tell which ones you need? and question 2, do these look the same to you? The first one is the one for the 2468 and the other is the one on ebay.

(You know, it makes no sense. I look and look for the proper cams for these machines and then put the cams in the closet and never use them.)

I was able to isolate the 11 cam from each set. I don't have a very sophisticated program, so could not make them very clear. But, still, they look the same to me. What do you think?

Really hard to tell from the pictures. Can you just try each one and see how they work?

No, that's the problem. One is for sale on Ebay and I only have a photo. The other is in a youtube video and I only have a photo.

I think I'll take a shot at the cams on Ebay, unless they get really expensive. No telling when another set will come up. I mean, Elgin is not exactly a household sewing machine name. If they are right, I'll be happy. If they are wrong, I can put them back on Ebay and get most of my money back.
