    Hi, I would like to have some advice about the possible age of this sewing machine. The serial number/code on the stand of the machine is V465876. Thank you

      thank you :)
      I should probably add that in the instructions manual there is a receipt from 25/4/58, but I am not sure if the machine was new at that point or second hand.

      Hello,
      Love these sewing machines...

      In our profile picture, my great, great grandfather , Jesse Hobbs from Pennington Gap Virginia, sold these sewing machines after migrating and settling on Crowleys Ridge in NE Arkansas, and is pictured in a horse pulled SINGER buggy with a singer sewing machine in back. This picture was taken around 1898-1905. The wood used for the case originated in East arkansas (Singer Woods), shipped to the northeast, assembled with the sewing machine, then shipped across the country for retail.

      aniaheasley, Beautiful.

      Per ISMACS, serial number V465876 is in a group of 250,000 allotted January - June 1908:

      aniaheasley, I did some more looking into this machine and its origins/variations.

      The model 27 has an extensive background:

      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Singer_Model_27_and_127

      https://www.singermachines.co.uk/faq/finding-model-from-serial-number/

      Perhaps the easiest way to distinguish between the 27(k) and the 28(k) is the bed width/depth.

      But regardless of the precise model number of machine you have, you might have something rather valuable in that manual.

      ISMACS seems not to have a copy of an instructions manual for the 27k/28k model machines.

      Singer has a manual for the 27/28 models, but it seems to be for later, electric versions:

      Tias has a 1910 copy, but it isn't free:

      https://www.tias.com/download---pdf-singer-27k-and-28k-sewing-machine-manual-smm289bpdf-588883.html

      I saw other copies out there, but so far, none that were free.

      If you want to be a hero to the antique sewing machine community, you might consider contacting Singer and/or ISMACS, and see whether they are interested in your 1906 manual:
