    I saw a 15 at a garage sale. walked on past it. Later as I was paying I looked again. What was that by the tensioner?. yep, a 115.
    Donated it to the VSM museum in Tulsa, They didn't have one yet. Now they have a few.

    Indeed, it is a 115. Thank you for the pictures.

    It looks like you may not have read all the digits (G 2728288). According to http://ismacs.net/singer_sewing_mach...l-numbers.html
    G- 2727501 2729500 115 2000 January 6 1913
    While there have been mistakes in the serial number lists, the majority of mistakes are not getting all the digits. Also, "G" serial numbers actually started over with a "0" in front and it covered 14 years.

    You are welcome. It happens frequently and especially with the "G" numbers. Sometimes, the digits are hard to decipher. It really helped that you had a good picture of the serial number and it was easy to read.
