What makes this Featherweight special?
This Featherweight is distinguished by the Singer decal on top of the arm instead of on the light housing. The placement of this decal was seen on some Featherweights mainly in 1939. One guess is that the Singer employee who installed the decals on the sewing machines was stuck all day doing decals on the Singer 66, 201, and 15 machines...here comes the Featherweight...whoops...the decal got put in the wrong spot; however, an increase in machines from this same batch with the decal on the arm give credence that it may have been intentional by Singer.
To guarantee the authenticity of this restoration, we took photos showing the machine, and the location of the Singer decal, and those photos can be seen in this listing. To protect the future buyer, we have covered up the last number of the serial number in the photos, but the intricacies in the stamping of each number can be identified in both the before and after photos.
