condition: excellent
make / manufacturer: Singer
model name / number: 15-91 1951 "Blue Badge"
For sale is my rare and highly collectible centennial "Blue Badge" Singer 15-91 sewing machine in original outstanding sewing and cosmetic condition. In celebration of Singers 100th anniversary, select models manufactured in 1951 were adorned with the coveted badge shown in the pictures. Collectors pay exorbitant sums for them, but I don't have the time and energy to seek them out. I would rather just see it go to a good home.

I'm a Leather worker and sewing machine enthusiast. This machine sewed off great without issue when I bought it. I repacked the potted motor with the original Singer grease that came with the machine, and gave it a good oiling. All adjustments were spot on, and just a little tweaking of the thread tensions got it sewing like day one. I'm only selling it because I use and collect industrial machines. This one caught my eye, but space is an issue.

Don't buy a modern cheapy plastic machine with cheapy plastic gears. Take it from the original Chicago woman who paid the astonishing 1951 sum of $282.90 for it because she knew that it had lasting value in the service that she would receive from it. This one makes a beautiful stitch, has reverse, charm to spare, and was built to last a couple of lifetimes. It will come with the original buttonholer and zig zag attachments, an add on template pack that she bought for the buttonholer, user manuals for the machine and attachments, 52 page singer sewing skills book, and the notions in the pictures. I'll include a bottle of oil. You are welcome to come try it out. Thanks for looking.
