Included in this auction are the following items and their condition:Singer sewing machine marked AK717054 with the blue & gold 100th anniversary plaque on the front. The machine is missing one of the plates that go around the needle area. The whole thing tilts up out of the wooden base to expose another small storage area underneath. The storage area to the back of the machine is complete with it's lid. T is a working light on the machine (with a bulb). The power cord and pedal is not removable and t is no damage. The belt is intact and not cracked. The machine powers on and the pedal works to power the motor but the arm that holds the needle is not moving up or down, it may just need some oil I do not know. The top of the case is wood with a wood & metal handle. The top has tiny dot's of white from paint spatter on it. t is a c(an arrow) and (another arrow) o painted on one side by the hole for the lock. I do not have a key for this, my husband was able to easily open it with a screwdriver. This machine came with a box (green marked Singer) with 8 attachments inside, most are marked Singer U.S.A. t are also a few old needles for the machine and the thread holder which is an odd size & shape. Some rust spots w the pieces were originally welded together & t but these are in amazing condition. This is a great piece of history and my low starting bid and NO RESERVE makes it an easily attainable piece for everyone! Don't miss out on this amazing rare machine!

I get my items from a variey of sources: estate sales, yard sales, auctions, thrift stores, my own home & occasionally family members give me things to sell. I generally sell new books & vintage items. New books are guaranteed to be new, if you get a book and t is something wrong please contact me. Vintage items are sold as is, when you buy a vintage item it will have been used, very rarely does an item survive 50+ years without some dings and dents. I do my best to be up front & honest about all of my auctions. I sell out of my home to supplement our income and continue to stay home with my kids, I am not a store.
