Your machine looks like it is in good condition but you do not state whether it is in working order or if the cabinet has flaws and that is a big part of what sets the value of one of these machines.
Since these are very large and heavy they are expensive to ship and also very difficult to pack and ship so usually they are listed for sale as pick up only so that means the area you live in will also have a bearing on the value.
- It is usually best to do some of your own research so you can see the condition and location of any like or similar listed for sale or any that sold. eBay is usually the site anyone checks more often as they tend to have more machines listed than other sites.
- Although you can Google 15-91 Singer and see a lot of sites but since there are so many different models within the 15-91 number that finding an exact match is sometimes difficult. Some of the other style 15-91's will be an almost exact match to the bicentennial with only a few minor difference.
- Your bicentennial 15-91 was probably made in 1950-1951 but I did not locate an exact date for your serial number.
- Here are listings for machines in your style cabinet but I'm not sure they are the bicentennial 19-51. These are listed for sale so you can place a watch on the link to see if they actually sell. You can also try to match them with the overall working condition of your machine and also the location of these machines.
- Here is a link to the 15-91 machines presently listed on eBay so you can look through to see if you wish to place a watch on any one or more to see if they sell.
- here is the link to the sold items on eBay. Keep check on this link to see what has sold to see how they compare with your machine.
- here are a couple of links for information pertaining to the 15-91 machine.
- If your machine is running and overall condition is good I believe your machine could sell in the $200-350 range that is if it is located in a larger metropolis area.
Here is a link to a 15-91 manual just in case you need one for your machine. check out this link if you need further information on this machine.

Look like you have a centennial machine!
See this article:
There are too many variables here to give you an exact value without seeing exactly what you have and the working condition and cabinet condition.
Pristine, fully working machines, with all of the accessories (NO CASE just the machine and do-dads) can sell in the high $200s.
The wood case can sell (alone) anywhere from $10 to in the hundreds, depending on condition. People like them for bathroom vanities, but they have to be pristine.
Selling this online will be challenging also as shipping it would be impossible for most "lay people".
Since there is still value in the item, check around your town to resale shops or shops specializing in sewing items and get them o give you a selling price and their percentage.
Post back what you learn!! You are a lucky duck to have such a neat item!! Can't wait to hear what you learn!
