Customer Question

My 100 year old aunt gave me a sewing machine. On the side it says NATIONAL SMCO. CAN YOU TELL ME WHERE TO GET INFO ON IT.
JA: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.
Customer: THE MACHINE ITSELF IS LYING INSIDE AN OLD SEWING TABLE WHERE THE TOP FOLDS OUT FOR SEWING AND HAS A CHAIN ON IT BUT IT IS STUCK SOMEWHERE. I CAN SEE THE SEWING MACHINE INSIDE BUT THAT IS ALL THAT I KNOW.
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?
Customer: THE IRON ON THE SIDES CIRCLES AND THE NAME NATIONAL, THE BACK HAS TWO 1/2 CIRCLES OF IRON. THE TREADLE IS ORNATE IRON AND THERE IS THE ROUND WHEEL WITH A BROKEN BELT. INSIDE THE MACHINE I CAN SEE NATIONAL . THERE ARE 4 WOODEN PULL OUT DRAWERS ON THE SIDES AND A BOX THAT SAYS SINGER MOTOR LUBRICANT,A NUMBER OF ATTACHMENTS AND AN SMALL OIL CAN AND AN OLD PRICE LIST OF PARTS BUT THE FRONT PAGE IS PARTLY TORN AWAY AND THE REST IS VERY BRITTLE.
