    I was surfing our local Goodwill.com and found this on auction...a white Featherweight 221J. Scroll down on the page to see better pictures.

    Saw it the 1st day, made bid, but new it would go higher. Looked today and showed my husband, he just said D___!
    Told him " I had bid on it for him for his B-day next month but didn't think he wanted to go that high" He said " Thanks, Babe but NO WAY!"

    No, it's because it is tan and the case looks to be in excellent condition!

    Sharon this machine is the most sought after machine next to the 222K, you are looking at the Tan FW. This one will get close to $600 before its over with.

    Can you believe someone donated it to Goodwill? Obviously not aware of what they had. It's right here in my own city! Maybe I should just head over there tomorrow just to take a peak at it. I CAN dream, can't I?

    I purchased mine for $70.00 plus tax (this month) from a lesser thrift store :)

    YAY!! I love it when one of us gets such a good deal on the vintage machines! We all know the deals are out there...it's a matter of having the time to go out and look.

    The white ones in the green and white case must not be as rare as the tan ones. I have a white one and it was $175. Hope it was a good price. It's in excellent condition.
