Looks like one of those Chinese machines. I wouldn't pay $200 for one.

I agree with Mark. You can always tell by the garish decals.

It could also have been made in India. Here's a link to the Singer India site:

As fancy as the machine is, it's not vintage at all. I agree with the previous comments, I wouldn't pay the price either.

all old vintage singers bear serial numbers... the new vintage that are " singer " are singer but not vintage and do not have serial numbers.

it's a clone, tell tale first is always check the singer name on top of the arm, They will never say The singer manufacturing Co. some have singer manufacturing co, this one say singer sewing machine company

The inda version, The colors are alot brighter and the design is not teh same as a singer . close but no banana

I think it's a cheapo copy! The decals definitely don't look like Singers. I wouldn't pay that price for it, although some of those machines do sew very well.

No matter how it sews now, the difference between the newer ones and the older ones is that the newer ones will NOT be sewing in 40 years...
