Default What could be worth $800 in this auction?


Is it that silver thing in the third picture? I'm mystified.

That's a lot of money to pay for a lot of duplicate gadgets.

I'm not sure but it looks like it would be the walking foot - they think is worth the money. I wouldn't pay that for any of those items. But maybe if you are a collector someone may be interested.

I would never purchase anything like this...not even if they were gold plated. Perhaps they intend on trying to resale some of the items to re-coop their money. Wishing them good luck.

In the little box directly in front of the green buttonholer case is a "penguin" walking foot. They go for a lot of money, certainly waaay out of my price range.

I thought maybe there was a penguin walking foot for the featherweight. Those go for a lot of money but I don’t see one in this lot.

The penguin foot is in front of the furthest right buttonholer in the first picture. It is in the picture with the 15-91 manual. It even shows the walking foot manual under the 15-91 manual I think the large silver attachment might be the the Swiss ZigZagger?? There is also a hemstitcher and who knows what else buried in those. I see several featherweight bobbins, so there may be some other goodies for either the 221 or 222.

They've already had 50 bids to get up to that price. I wonder where the bidding started.
