Singer dating sewing machine
Not to get confused with Elizabethport, USA, that did not use a letter suffix, starting in January 1953 Singer identified the Anderson, South Carolina factory by placing the letter suffix "A" after the model number, hence the 301A.After the last Slant-needle, Singer Model 503A, sewing machine was manufactured in 1963 the Anderson plant stayed open for many years afterwards with 3 manufacturing lines: Sewing Machines, Floor-care products (vacuum cleaners) and Power Tools.A joint licensing agreement for offering this entire database on the Internet, print media is only between the Culture Management Berlin [Germany] and the Singer Corporation NV [USA]. The only production records from the Anderson factory is the "NA" Series Register Numbers in 1951 when a limited edition of only 10,000 Singer Model 301 sewing machines were allotted for Singer's 100th Anniversary.
Summary of the "Year of Issue" from the Registry of Serial Numbers!
To date your Singer Featherweight, you will need to locate the serial number on the bottom of your machine.
It is therefore my goal to establish a database of serial numbers for all Slant-needle models and create the most accurate "Year of Issue" as possible, the year your sewing machine was actually made.
The database includes, model, color, serial number, short or long bed, original purchase receipts, instruction manual copyright date and revised dates, other owner information.
This database is the first and only complete database of Singer sewing machines productions in the world.
Copyrights are owned by the Berlin-based agency "Culture Management Berlin".
Other information may include original purchase receipts, instruction manual copyright date and revised dates, pictures, other owner information.
In addition, a large collection of reference materials was also used.
If the owner of any Slant-needle model sewing machine inputs their Serial Number they will receive a certificate, but guess what?
