    I seriously doubt that anyone would pay such a high price for this! Gimme a break! :D
    Also some people get the idea that b/c it's in demand people will stop at nothing. Too many FW's out there though.
    Dreamers!!!!!!!!!

    Most of the rest of them on ebay are going in the $200 - $300 range it looks like.

    From the price I'll guess that it will join his "collection". Way too rich for my blood.

    perhaps because they have the carrying case and it looks to be excellent condition. all the attachments. the instruction/maintenance book looks in excellent condition also. i have one [my late grmothers] and it has been well used. considered in excellent condition tho a few issues w/the japan black finish. and the case is worn. cord replaced. and it has been valued at over 700$us....and the one in this ad looks brand new compared to mine [i also have all the attachments and the book - but the dealer doing the assesment didn't know that]

    Because many are looking for them now- so everyone thinks they are sitting on a gold mine when they have one - not to say that they are not worth a bit of money but some people seem to take it to an extreme JMHO :lol:

    The new carrying cases being made for them makes the value even lower.

    I did notice that the flywheel is chrome, but that shouldn't put the value where that seller has it.

    Probably because it is one of the very early ones. I believe the first one came out in 1935 and this is a '36... I don't know the reason, but I know some collectors want the 1936 machines. Maybe someone else here can tell us why? You don't see a 1936 FW come up for sale very often.

    There are people out there with more money than sense, and someone will probably buy this machine for that price!

    Well, it's nice to know that the case cares. It is a "caring" case, after all!

    Maybe the original book, small inner box for attachments in good shape and oil can? It still seems very high to me. I have noticed that ebay actually seems to have depressed the prices because they are coming out of the woodwork now that every one knows they are valuable. When I first saw 2 for sale they were $450 and $500.

    I got mine for a really good price, but she's no movie star, her box is scuffed, handle worn, decals worn, paint a little worn and the box was musty...altho right now, it's open with coffee grounds in it, thanks to another thread. Plus we couldn't get her to stitch so we got some off for that. I love her, but I doubt she'd go for $700 or even close, even tho I have at least one of almost every attachment, including zig-zagger and an original penguin walking foot

    The case that is shown with this machine is for one of the earlier machines, possibly 1933. Its in very good condition,
    but it isn't worth that much! I've paid as little as $100 for a FW in this condition.
    Lots of sellers seem to think because its old its worth a fortune. PULEEZE!!!

    I misunderstood the case to be a newer one but it appears to be the original.

    I LOVE some of the spelling goofs in a lot of the eBay listings and also Craigslist. Sometimes spellcheck is NOT your friend :-D

    Gee, I hope he gets what he wants for it for that would make the ones we have more valuable. Sometimes, just because someone paid a big price for something makes it more valuable to them. Wouldn't e just love to have the money to brag that we paid $1,000.00 for a FW? :)
