This is a 1893 singer sewing machine model VS2. I called singer and they said it was made on October 31, 1893. The foot pedal and needle stil work. It's in good condition, still with paint, s/n, etc. my mother got it from her grandmother and were trying to determine how much we could get for it and so on. Please, email with information. Thanks!

    Hi, my name is butch an i have the same sewing machine this was made in september 20,1893 and i still have all the acces. including the wood top and 3 manuals from 1893 i was just wondering if you might know the value of your sewing machine.

    Butch : I fix and restore antique and vintage sewing machines as a hobby and small business out of my home . I have stated over and over again to many on this web site . It all has to do with condition . Just because a machine is old it does not make it worth a lot of money . It needs to be in good working order , not just have the needle go up and down , it needs to form a stitch ( actuality sew ) . The more of the original paint and decals the better . The condition of the cabinet is also important to the value . It is almost impossible to give a true value of any machine without seeing it in person . You can look on E-Bay and see what machines like yours may be selling for . That will give you " SOME IDEA " . It is not a true guide . Anything is only worth what someone may be willing to pay for it . However I buy machines like the one above for around $25.00 here in Missouri . Some like this have even been given away . I have come home quite a few times to find machines like the one above without the cabinet sitting on my front porch . The most I have ever paid for a Treadle Singer machine was $200.00 and I paid that just to get the nice cabinet for another more collectable machine to go into .

    In the process of purchasing an 1891 similar to above, wish they went for $25 out here in WA! In the meantime, there is some water damage on the top cabinet. Since I am purchasing to use, sounds like there aren't an major downsides to resurfacing the cabinet top (e.g. new veneer)?
