    Please help me identify a singer machine

    I just got this new singer sewing machine that I cannot identify. It has the no 0932277 on the front, which according to singer database is from 1872. But this machine is in an amazing condition and comes with a wooden box. Has a sewing motor and light and works. There s also a different serial number on the sewing motor (2267381). Can this be an upgraded 1872 machine?
    How much is it worth?

    There are a few hickups in the serialnumer records, but it looks pretty clear on yours. It starts with 0 or O.

    However, it all points to a 128 (the top tensioner and the high set bobbin winder). The earlier 28 has a manaul thread release lobe, the later 128 has thread release in the presser foot lifter. It's in very good condition, clean shiny and the decals are in great condition, even with the damange in the corner. Most machines are much more worn. The early Singers (early 1900 and before) often have much heavier hand wheels. Like you I wonder if it's an older machine fitted with motor, lights and upgrades later on?

    Serial #s and motor numbers never match as far as I know.

    The website below has photos of the various decals Singer used over the years. According to the site your machine has the La Vencedora decal. It's a beautiful machine in excellent condition.
