Default new or vintage bobbins for featherweights?

Found a new-to-me featherweight at garage sale for $125, its off to the sewing machine guy for a check up. When going through attachments and bobbins found some of these, are they new or old with this small extra hole, made it great for winding the bobbins.

My featherweight came with one original bobbin and I bought 6 bobbins from my featherweight dealer close to me. If the replacements are good ones, they work just as well. Compare the replacement to your original and then try one in the machine at the shop.

I have both. The new ones work just as well as the old.

Mine only came with 2 originals but I picked up 6 more from an online Featherweight shop. I am sure you will be excited when it comes back from the shop.

My repos work fine for piecing, but AnnieRose (FW's cousin, a 301 - same bobbin) prefers an original when FMQ. Mine came from the Featherweight Shop.
