    Periodically Singer would produce "Specially Badged" sewing machines for various Expositions and World Fairs. In addition to the picture of various "Badges" are examples of a few of these machines; 1) Century of Progress ~ Chicago 1933, 2)Century of Progress ~ Chicago 1934 3) "Texas Centennial Exposition ~ 1836 - 1936, 4) Golden Gate Exposition ~ San Francisco 1939, 5) Golden Gate Exposition ~ San Francisco 1940, 6) A Century of Sewing Progress ~ 1851-1951 w/ rare M.R. arm decal 7) New York World's Fair 1964-1965. Each is a rare find in and of itself but to have all 7 in a single collection is "Special"

      I absolutely love your collection and going to have nightmares tonight. I've bought two more Singers since the Green Goddess. I soon will not have even room on the bed to sleep. Beautiful Collection.

      Too late, an 1887 27 and put together an entire treadle system for it, and a 15-91 in a cabinet, and I'm afraid to count anymore. You're so right, it can easily turn into an obsession. Haven't bought anything in over a week though so I THINK I'm back to my senses.

    8. Pam-and-J.C.Elliott Pam-and-J.C.Elliott, 11 years ago
      TheFinder - certainly...but I'll need more information i.e., style of the machine, details to include the full serial number..
    9. Pam-and-J.C.Elliott Pam-and-J.C.Elliott, 5 years ago
      Thanks for asking. It is a Model 185 made between 1959-1963. A prized collectible...
      I commented with a link to the ISMACs website for them to find out more in setail...
      Thanks again,

      I’m very curious if you know how many other singer models were given the Texas centennial badge? I saw one, a 15-91, in a shop while heading for a wedding in Dallas area. Only stopped long enough to snap pictures. Then didn’t look at the pics for a few days and noticed the Texas v]centennial badge. Wondering if it’s worth a drive to North Texas to pick it up?
