    This was my great great grandmother's machine she purchased at the 1936 Texas World's Fair (Serial # AE052619) . It is in it's original cabinet (restored several years ago) it was purchased with (Serial # A423726). It was passed down to my mother many years ago, and is the machine she uses for any sewing needs. This beauty is fully operational and sews like a dream! I recently inherited my great great grandmothers 4 spoke Singer Toy sewing machine which caused me to look into the history of our heirloom pieces and was thrilled to learn the rarity of this expedition piece!

      I hate to be the one to tell you this but your grandmother's machine is not a Featherweight . A Featherweight machine is a 3/4 size portable machine and has a bed that folds up on the left end . This is a full size machine with what is called a potted motor which the Featherweight does not have . I do not remember the model of this machine at the moment , but I know for a fact that it is not a Featherweight . I will have to do some research to find out what model it is . It is a very nice machine in a very nice cabinet however and a nice treasure to have . I restored a green one like this for a friend and I knew the model number at that time but I can not remember it right now .

      I did some research and I believe your machine is a Singer 201-2 model . The green machine that I restored for my friend was not the same model . Her machine was a 15- 125 . The difference is that on her machine the tension assembly is on the end and not on the front like your machine .
