Customer Question
I have a 1915...

I have a 1915 singer sewing machine in an oak cabinet, MPN G5551709. What is my treasure worth?

Expert's Assistant: Don't you just love the idea of finding something valuable in your attic? I do, but I think all I have up there is junk my brothers abandoned before they left home. Always a good idea to check things with the Antiques Appraiser, though. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

Cabinet is parlor type with decorative scrollwork. I found a listing for $700.00 for this item. That's about all I can tell you.

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?

Seems to be in good shape, except the belt is broken. The cabinet is good,everything works,
