The Singer model 66 is a "Classic". This particular full-sized 66-6 was sold at the "Century of Progress" World's Fair held in Chicago in 1933 & again in 1934. Singer had a booth in the "Electrical Building" where they demonstrated their electrically powered machines. Those customers that purchased and or ordered a machine at the fair received their machines with this "Special" badge. The fair was held during the heart of the "Great Depression". Because this was at a trying time for most Americans, these "Badged" machines are very very "Rare".
(see the additional listings for the "221 Featherweight" (introduced at the Fair) and the "Model 99", also with this rare badge.
