Morning Frank, I had something quite urgent come up yesterday, so sorry I was not about. Um where would the serial number be located at? The 'Machine' is tucked away with furniture around it so I will need to get someone to clear a path for me. Are there many old Singer Sewing Machines around and are they popular for collectors? (Just asking)
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I will be able to get a nice 'Photo' of it once there is a clearing. I am in South New Jersey very close to 'Cape May', so hoping for a fair price.

Hello Ms Celtic.The serial number would be on the back of the machine itself. a photo would be great if possible, if not the serial number would be a big help. A catch 22 with these old singers is that they were built to last, which means there are quite a few of them around still. With that being said collectors are still looking for them, especially in tip top shape.
