    One day, you'll only be a memory for some people. Do your best to be a good one.

    Yes, well I guess we COULD take their word for it...

    Nobody seems to know anything about 201K's here - you could get one in mint condition in a nice cabinet for that money. Not sure what's happening down under but there's a distinct lack of appreciation for some of these great machines.

    if I read it right plenty of people on QB seem to be fixated on the new plastic wonders.
    NEVER let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.

    When I said "here" I meant Australia - following on from previous question about machine values in Australia. Obviously they are HIGHLY valued here

    They are highly valued by us sewing machine kooks but not necessarily by all the quilters.

    50 AUD = 48.49 USD as of today.

    Considering the amount of rodent damage to that 201K I'd have to pass. And I wouldn't mind having that machine but it's just a horrid mess. Poor thing.

    Well, Joe, beauty IS in the eye of the beholder... It looks like the beholder thinks it is beautiful or something or he would have scrapped it.

    Miriam,

    I've been around the bend with rodent damaged machines. Got it up and running too. So far the paint hasn't been dealt with and it's still UGLY.

    If beauty is in the eye of the beholder, maybe the seller of that 201K should go to the ER and have it removed.

    ok, am I just tired? This photo claims to have been taken in 1973 of a "100 year old machine"

    This DOES NOT look like an 1873 machine that I have even seen...

    This makes my heart hurt... http://www.ksl.com/index.php?nid=218...chine&ad_cid=5

    Then this makes me think he's smoking way too much to ask for this amount: http://www.ksl.com/index.php?nid=218...chine&ad_cid=2

    Methinks there's an extra digit on that serial number that hasn't been counted... http://www.ksl.com/index.php?nid=218...hine&ad_cid=11

    Yeah, it was a zero, it was added to the back of the price.

    Sometimes I have to ask what was I smoking. I had this one on my watch list, got busy with life, and missed the ending. Kicking self. Whoever bought this one got a seriously good deal. The stool alone is worth more than he paid.

    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    That was quite the deal! If it was within 100 miles of me I would want it.

    I'm sort of coveting this beast. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-Kenm...item4173a11496 Look at the size of that body! Between that one and this one: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...tchlink:top:en i can't tell which one i like more. LOL

    this one looks like a clone right? http://www.ebay.com/itm/Antique-Vint...item2c6f2532d0

    Last but not least, if anyone is looking to play and fix this beauty it's a steal for the current auction price: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-Kenm...item3a81629373 I suspect a thread nest and a good oiling will get her up and running again.

    Hmm. Guess they can't read since I saw Singer PLAINLY on both the machine and irons. Sure is beautiful...they got that right but somehow I guess those antique Brunswicks (was he thinking pool table?) command a higher price.
