The majority of antique singer sewing machines are not worth very much money these days, this is due to so many being made as a tool to be used, that not many were kept and preserved.  In fact, the machines which are of value nowadays have likely either been destroyed or already bought by collectors.

If you want to know how much money your antique Singer sewing machine could be worth, then the following steps may help you with this task.

Find out the model number as this will tell you a lot about the potential value of your machine.  An electric Singer 99 or 66 model has very little value (approximately $25 to $50) due to them being so common.  A Singer 127 in excellent condition which is in a 7 drawer treadle stand can be worth between $250 and $500.

Determine the condition of your machine, the better the condition then the more value your machine is worth.  Please note however, it must be a preferred model, a Singer 99, 66 or 128 is not worth much regardless of its condition.

Find out how complete the machine is.  Does it have the user’s manual with it?  Does it have all accessories and attachments and are they in their original packaging?  Are all the parts in working order?  If you can answer yes to the above and the machine is a preferred model number, it will hugely increase the value.

Singer Corporation was originally known as I.M. Singer & Co when it was first established in 1851 by Isaac Merritt Singer and New York lawyer Edward Clark.  It was renamed to The Singer Company in 1963 and is currently based in La Vergne, Tennessee near Nashville.

To summarize, most sewing machines are worth next to nothing, but if you are lucky (or have been shrewd) and have a preferred model in great condition, you may well have a small fortune sitting in your garage!

In working condition the small portable ones in the black case can be worth as much as $1,000. The antique ones in the sewing table are valued at $150 (on up) depending on the quality of the sewing table; the amount of intricate design on the machine; how old it is; and how much a buyer is willing to pay for it. The older Singer foot tredle sewing machines are valuable.

Try this link.  It will give you at least some information about model, make and year, etc.  Value is a little more complicated of course.  I was told that machines converted to electric lost value.  How much, I don't know but I just bought a 1927 machine with cabinet that was converted for 30.00 and it's awesome looking.  So either I got a deal or it's worthless as far as resale.  A little TLC and it's worth a lot more then 30.00 to me personally.

I got a sewing machine, that is rusty and not the greatest conditions.. It looks like someone left it outside all the time.. Its model number is D1.269.235, Which according to the singer web site is 1909, made in Elizabeth, New Jersey USA.  It does look old and warn but the markings are very beautiful and look very victorian.. I don't  know if its worth anything, but if I clean it up I think it will look cool somewhere..  Any ideas to the worth?

There are numerous antique dealers all over the country, and probably in your local area as well. You can talk to them or take it to them and get their best opinion, guestimate, and then get an average from that. You might be able to contact the Smithsonian Institute and see what they might be able to tell you. I would even contact some museums that deal with American history. Don't think about letting it go too cheap if you are looking to sell it, you want all the info you can get so you don't sell yourself short. Cherish that little piece of history that you have.
If someone famous owned it, or someone significant in history did, then it would bring up the value of the item, if you could prove who the owner was. Good luck to you, and hope this helps you out.
