    Lots of "0" here... don't know why somebody is thinking an unused sewing machine sitting for more than 50 years would be worth that much...

    Likely he will move them to the shed or garage... or dump them in the GW bin on a rainy day when he gets tired of looking at them. Maybe he will remarry and his new wife will want them. I doubt if you could buy them, sell off anything any good and still turn a dime. You would have to be wanting a collection then wanting that collection.

    Ok, it was a typo mistake (first price was 10 000$!) But still... 100$ is a lot of money for a White.

    I have ads, not for sewing machines but other random stuff. Even with my cell phone in there.

    bad & blurry picture

    "It is a brown sewing machine that is verry old it has all parts to it like new gently used good for some one who like collectibles you can call or text 317XXXXXXX its a nb sewing machine really old"

    Hi,

    I can't make out the name either but the make is by Davis SM Co out of Dayton, Ohio and is an Underfeed model. Serial number is on the front slide plate and she appears to have been made in the 00's. Don't know anything about the second pic.

    How about a "professionally appraised" Piaza machine? Emailed and said it is likely a Plaza. Price dropped to $150, bu appraiser comment remains. Oh well.

    Every time I click on something here, all I get is something that says the page isn't available.
