    I think it is a 28.
    Hi, it's a 66 or 99 depending on length of bed. 14-5/8" is a 66 full size. Best bet is to download a free Singer Manual http://www.cuttersexchange.com/IPinstManuals/. This will give much useful info and your machine probably just needs a good cleaning and lubing to work. The needles are standard 15x1.
    Good Luck

    Thanks, it is a bit smaller machine.

    Thanks for your help.
    Ooops! I looked at your picture. You are correct it is a 28.
    Hi BZ,
    Sorry about the mis-informatin but the links are good for your manual. The 127 is a bigger version of the 28 or 128 and takes a 15x1 needle. You might want to verify, though. :)

    When I looked it up I thought it was a 28, but I will bow to greater knowledge.

    Thanks for helping.

    Hi Bev,
    If you leave the last digit off G3957244 it is a Singer 28, thats what I must have done, so G395724 is a Singer 28. I realize the manual link looks like a porn site but it really does have almost all Singer manuals, industrial and domestic. If anyone doesn't have the Singer serial number and dating site here it is, http://www.singerco.com/admin-suppor...serial-numbers I keep both of these bookmarked.

    My CL Find--Is an AG Mason Golden Star machine and cabinet. I got it for $65.00, so I was very pleased. Now I need to know how old it is. The serial number is 5138598. I know there was some sort of relationship to White Sewing machines.

    Anyone have any information for me???

    Hi Jan,
    Beautiful machine. I worked on a White VSIII that looked just like it from the Teens. Can't help out on AG Mason except I have one of their Rotaries missing the Slide Plate and Bobbin Case that is a White Rotary "Clone".
    Good Luck and enjoy

    Thanks Jon--
    Maybe White private "badged" for AG Mason. Will the White Rotary slide plate and bobbin case work as a replacement??

    Jan,
    That's what I though or the patents expired and they just copied. My AG Mason (the paper people?) is badged "Florence Rotary" and from the Teens or early Twenties and I believe a White Rotary from that period would work, though it's not high on my priorities list. I'm not too well versed in White machines, my intererest being in first Davis and second Singer. I know there are groups and individuals who are White fanatics who can probably be of more help.
