White sewing machine in the fancier cabinet with the manual, key, bobbins and accessories in the metal box. I found 2 numbers. One looks like a serial number on the machine (FR2343634) and the other just below the ruler embedded into the cabinet in front of the machine (PAT. SEP '87). The whole unit is in beautiful condition. Not looking to sell; just wondering approximate year and value.

    Looks to be in lovely condition, you should search Ebay or similar for prices.

    Hi, I have the exact sewing machine. My parents had an antique dealer look at it around 20 years ago. He said the number on the ruler was the year 1887. But like the lady above said, everything I can find says they were not made that early. I don't want to sell either but I would love more information.
