    They're not going to get either of those prices, I don't think!

    It does say "or best offer" though, which will almost certainly be about 10% what he's asking :-)

    They look like the same machine to me. I guess it is worth whatever price they have in mind even if it is outrageous.

    Actually some of those are pretty darn nice but a whole lot cheaper nice... I thought I hated those until I got one that works right. The 600 and the 603 aren't bad machines if the bobbin winder works and all the rest of the stars line up with the moon or what ever.... $500 not happening.
    Never let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.

    I bet you dollars to donuts the seller doesn't know how to pull the machine out of the table and keep it up!

    "This is a Canadian made White Sewing Machine Company, Model 464, with table from the 1950's.
    We hate to see it go, but we no longer have the room for it any longer and hope that someone who knows it's value will take good care of it. "

    I like to think I have an idea of the "value" of machines of that vintage, and $300 isn't it....

    Those are very nice machines - I would like to get $50 for one... all refurbished, too...

    Did they make that style machine in the 50s? Looks more recent to me. Of course I've been wrong before. . . Oh its the table that is from the 50s - that I believe, as we had one like that when I was growing up.

    I think they just guessed - Grandma was married back then so the machine must be that old, too...

    I saw this yesterday http://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/richm...ine/1020945186
    I emailed the advertiser with "that's not a 502k". He replied "Yes it is". I actually laughed out loud! Had to tell him, though, "Sorry, but it's just that it is obvious it's not a 502k and I thought I'd let you know. I was just trying to help you but you're so certain that this 201 is a 502, so my mistake"

    I wonder if he knows it requires thread in order for the "seams" to "appear"?

    I always cringe when I see a fabric pin catcher wrapped around the arm of a sewing machine 'cause I've seen what the pins do to the paint underneath. Still, if shipping to the U.S. weren't prohibitive, I would certainly give $30 for a 201k.
