How Old Is My Singer Sewing Machine?

sewing sewing machine

Singer sewing machines have a long and rich history, dating as far back as 1851. These beautiful machines have evolved over the years but are still standing the test of time, with some of the older models being highly sought after by collectors and sewing enthusiasts. If you’ve nabbed one of these beautiful bargains at a local market, auction or garage sale, it’s worth identifying the age and model of your machine to see if you’ve managed to pick up a rare antique.

Whether you want to pick up one of your own older models because you love the history, aesthetics or nostalgia of the piece, they’re easily still found on the market if you know what you’re looking for. So, how old is my Singer sewing machine? To identify when a model was made, you need to first find the Singer sewing machine serial number. The number can be found near the on/off switch on newer machines, and on the front panel or on a small plate on older machines.

Once you’ve found the number, match it to the date in our chart to discover the age of your machine

Why do Singer’s have Serial Numbers?

Singer’s have always been marked with serial numbers ever since production began, with each number corresponding to a model from a certain date, and even location. All Singer sewing machines up until 1900 have no letter prefix and came from all around the world. The Singer company eventually managed their production from all their factories to match up with the serial number flow.

How to choose a valuable model

The first thing to look for if you’re after a collector’s Singer machine is the age of the item. Over 100 years old is considered an antique, and younger than that is ‘vintage’. By matching the serial number to the corresponding date, you can determine the exact age of the machine.

Quality also plays an important part in the value of the model. As expected, high quality, functioning machines are more sought after than damaged ones and tend to be a better option. Machines that don’t function at all may not be worth collecting, but if you find a damaged machine that can be repaired with new parts it may still be a worthwhile purchase.

From a collector’s viewpoint, there is a select amount that is valuable enough to be classed as real collectors’ items. This includes any of the machines that come with their own table, blacksides which have a black instead of the polished finish, and the vintage 221 and 222 Featherweight models. These rare models can go for around $600 or even more if they’re in perfect working order.

The History of Singer

The Singer brand is synonymous with being the best in the business.  After opening a local factory in Glasgow, in 1867, the machines were flying off the shelves. Popularity only grew and factories opened worldwide. By World War 2, the Singers were actually producing guns and bullets as a priority to sewing machines – which they only continued making in their spare time. Isaac Singer was the founder of the company and was the first to create treadle powered, belt powdered and eventually electricity-powered machines. Isaac Singer boasts a unique story as detailed here, and was a pioneer of the sewing industry. Funnily enough, with an ‘enthusiastic’ approach to women, Isaac even hired female demonstrators to disprove any ideas that women were too incompetent to work a machine. This enthusiastic approach to women continued into his private life, where he had a total of 24 children!

Designs Throughout The Years

Singer treadle sewing machines are one of the most popular Singer antiques and are still regularly found in auctions and antique dealers today. These older machines were made of heavy-duty components and replaceable parts so they are still used, and are incredibly long-lasting. A treadle machine is one powered by a foot pedal and runs mechanically by the user pushing back and forth on the pedal. A reliable, eco-friendly machine, many sewers still prefer to use this type of model today.

The design has naturally changed over the years with advances in technology. Electric motors and bolt-on lights were introduced to the machines in 1921, and the treadle tables gradually faded away to chunky box bottoms in the 1930s. The use of new materials throughout the 20th century made the design sleeker and lighter and allowed for new functions to be introduced.

Today’s Singers

Today’s machine can cost from as little as $100 up to $1600, depending on the functions and type of machine. But why is Singer so popular? One of the reasons is not only due to the rich history, but the fact that they cater to all sewing needs. Singer has a reputation for creating innovative machines and was the first to ever introduce electric, zigzag and electronic machines that were targeted to the home sewing market. Affordable machines with a multitude of features that are readily available are just some of the reasons they’re likely the most popular brand out there.

Whether you’re a beginner or a professional, want an electronic or a mechanical machine, work with embroidery or patchwork, there’s something for everyone. Every model has a unique range of useful functions such as automatic needle threaders and even LCD screens, which is part of what makes the brand the go-to for sewers.

  • I have a Singer sewing machine. I would like to find someone who can make use of it. Its an 1877 model has a foot pedal and light, sits on a metal plate in the middle of a wooden square that opens underneath as its lifts…. The first photo of this information I received from your post is duplicate to the one I have. Please reply if you have any info on what I can do ….. Thanks —great info—

    • Hi Farah! How cool that you own one of these groundbreaking machines!! Consider contacting vintage stores to see if they’ll give you a proper price, or look for an online sewing community that understands the value of a Singer. As long as your buyer understands how coveted & rare these machines are, I think you’re good to go! Best of luck to you!

      • Hi Kaity………….I just found a singer sewing machine with a foot pedal and light. I’m not sure how to find out if it’s a rare find or not. Can you help me. I came in a vintage looking box. It turns on and the light turns on too. There are a few numbers on these golden plates next to the needle. Not sure what they mean.

    • I can’t find serial# beginning in AF. Any suggestions?

    • Hi my name is Maria Theresa, I was wondering if you still have the old sewing machine. Do you have a picture of it? I have been trying to find a sewing machine that is manual since that has so many treasures connecting to my childhood. We have an old singer sewing machine back overseas and up to this day we still have it, although it probably hasn’t been used since my Mom passed a few years back. I‘m here in the States and I would like to acquire one not only can I manipulate & know how to use it coz I’m very familiar with it. I was gifted a portable electric sewing machine by an ex fiancé but just recently or maybe lose it coz we moved and left it at the previous rental just last February and haven’t been able to get it back since our previous landlord is a very selfish guy who is giving us a hard time to get some of our belongings back. Haven been able to respond to my calls. I believe he wants to keep our things that we have planned to pick up. Right now I’m aching to use my sewing machine to keep me occupied with this quarantine but left with nothing. Hopefully I’ll be able to acquire one at a reasonable price in the future.

      Thank you!
      Hope to hear from you
      Best Regards! God bless ✌️❤️🙏🙏🙏

  • Hello,
    I have my Grandmothers old Singer machine. Very heavy, in a domed metal, wood grained cabinet for portability and has a small key to open the side lock. The serial number is AF197893 and has a medallion from the San Francisco Exposition in 1938. I cannot find a model number and am looking for a Manual for this machine. After replacing the electrical cord, it runs fine but needs a good cleaning and some other maintenance. There doesn’t appear to be any belt, rather a gear drive. Also no foot pedal, but a bar is inserted in the side of the lower cabinet and is actuated by your knee to run the machine. Right now, it’s impossible to remove the bobbin, as the cover slides over only 3/4 of the way needed to get it out. The Singer website does not mention this serial number and I found the origin on another site. Anyone know more about this type machine?, Thx

  • I just bought a Universal sewing machine without a manual. The machine works great, except the needle position is all the way to the left and I can’t figure out how to get it in the center. There’s no obvious needle position knob or lever. I have a feeling something inside may have gotten jammed in the left position. Otherwise, it sews fine. It has a buttonholder, which I haven’t seen on many comparable machines. Haven’t found any photos of this machine searching Google and vintage machine sites. (I didn’t see a way to post a photo here.)

    Here’s what I know: It’s a Universal Model No. 700, serial number 14109. Made by the Osaka Sewing Machine Mfg. Co. in Osaka Japan. A number molded into the base is J-C31.

    It was my grandmother’s. It was given to her in 1923 as a wedding present but was pre owned at that time.

    BB 381 my machine would have been built in 1684.
    Obviously these numbers are fake but I wanted to give you an idea of how it works. Hope this clears up any confusion you all have about your machine not being on the list.

  • I have a Singer # Y721838 Ids it at a 15k made in 1929 but it doesn’t look anything like a 15k it looks more like a 99. flat front plate and the tensioner is not on front plate but faces you as you sew. It is an electric belt drive in a round top wood case. I need parts for it and when I look at 15k parts they don’t look right. Any clue if this is marked wrong or did the 15k come with tensioner facing you and not the front?

    • I have a singer 368 made in Italy
      The serial number on the bottom is M-007-00532
      Any ideas when it was made please

  • Hello All! I have been on several sites but cannot seem to find my numbers in the range that make sense. The serial number on the bottom of the machine is K7326351. The K ranges I have seen only go to 1260800, and indicate a 1904 date which I am not sure about. It is a 99K, and the plate on the front says EH958178…and while the bottom specifically indicates that K7326351 is the serial number, when I look up the EH number, it does make sense, and in two places suggests a 1953 date. Should I assume the EH number on the front is the serial number, despite the clear numbers on the bottom?

    Thank you!

  • I have a vintage singer sewing machine. The serial number is legible except for the first letter, if it is even a letter. It looks like it could be a “C” but I can’t make it out. It is electric and in a cabinet. The rest of the serial number is 7802645. It is stamped in such a way that each numbers appears to have been stamped individually as they are not lined up perfectly but askew. I found one in the same cabinet on Ebay and it says they think it is from the 1970s but the wall plug looks older than that, it is round. Can anyone help me with this? This cabinet seems to be more rare as I cannot find it on any of the singer vintage pages. Thanks in advance for any help.
