Singer sewing machines are ancient sewing machines known all over the world. A sewing machine from this company was in every home, so now our grandmothers still keep similar antiques. But time goes by, and over time everything gets old. That is why today Singer sewing machines are in demand mainly among antique collectors, but in order to sell such a machine to a collector, you need to know the year of its production, which can be determined in several ways.
The production date of the sewing machine can be found directly on the product itself. Cars with a cast iron body are always dated on the body itself. On foot machines, you can find the date in two places: on the large rotation wheel or on the back of the case (below or inside the monogram). On a manual typewriter, check the front wall under the monogram - the date should be there.
If your typewriter did not have the year of manufacture, or for some reason you could not find it, there are other ways to find out the required date. Each car has a serial number, which can be viewed both on the box and on the machine itself or in its passport. Go to the official website of the Singer company and, using the user's assistant, enter the serial number of the machine known to you and find out in what year it was released. Old sewing machines are highly valued by customers, so it is of fundamental importance for you to know the exact release date of a particular product.
If you can't get the information you need online, go to a sewing machine store that works with Singer. The seller in such a store will tell you where you can get qualified help in determining the year of manufacture of the sewing machine, and, perhaps, will immediately prompt you the answer to your question. Again, you will definitely need the serial number or lot number of the sewing machine to do this.
Having found out the production date of your machine, be sure to consult with a specialist appraiser who will inspect your machine, assess its condition and determine the market value from which you can build on in the sale process. Old Singer sewing machines are a quality and reliable product, so maybe you should think about it and use it for your own purposes. Maybe in another half a century you will become the only owner of a sewing machine, which will be, for example, 200 years old.
