I have a Jones...

I have a Jones hand crank sewing machine serial # 149582. Can you help me with more information on this machine - e.g what year it was made, what its worth now.....? Thank you.

Expert's Assistant: 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 Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

I'm afraid I don't have much history on it. Bought it at a craft show. Sorry.

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

Not that I can think of. I've been using it as a decorative conversation piece and have never tried to use it. I'm pretty sure it still works.

Hi, My name is ***** ***** it is my pleasure to assist you. Below is a little history of the Jones sewing machine co. plus the list of serial numbers that will tell when your machine was made which would be in between 1892 & 1913. The value in today's market in good body & working condition $325.00 to excellent body & working condition $650.00. I hope this helps you. Thanks Mike

Jones originally in or around 1880 started with a simply num***** *****st of serial numbers for all their machines. Whilst they continued this one num***** *****st it is possible to approximately date a machine. Jones in their wisdom started several different numeric and alpha-numeric serial number runs after 1935. After that date it is impossible to accurately date machines.
