Value of a Singer Sewing Machine 15-90

How can I determine the value of a Singer 15-90 serial number is AG557039? It was made in Elizabeth, NJ we think in 1944? There is the original case, instruction book, and 6 different foot attachments. It has been in the same family since it was purchased. Of course it works!

Hi,

I agree. I also found one of these Singer Sewing Machines on ebay for about $350.00. This is a very pretty sewing machine, and so many people like them.

Blessings,

Robyn

when you go to sewing aficionados websites, these machines rate pretty well. They hold up to scrutiny and still manage to work through the ages. I know quilters who still use these machines

$350 sounds about right.

The asking prices on these machines runs from $100 - $400 and they seem to be selling faster than some other models (of course, the Singer Feather Weight is the all time favorite).

  • The difference in price will usually be determined by the overall cosmetic condition (working of course) as well as accessories included. But the area the machine is located may have some effect also as shipping seems to be running between $50-$90 and if it was available for pick up that might help sell it faster.
  • Here is a link to this model machines listed on eBay and the seller's asking prices. Asking prices do not really say much about the value but sold prices are what someone has actually agreed to pay.
  • The listing site is from Canada but the machines are in the US and US prices are shown plus shipping cost (within the US). You can place a watch on any of these if you want to see if it sells.

  • Here is a link to the machines that actually sold over the past several months (3-5 months) so maybe you can find a similar set up like yours and see what it actually sold for.

  • There are other sites to research but eBay usually has more listings and more sales than any other site.
  • You say that you think it is from 1944 but I do not find Serial #AG 557039 listed as a valid number. But close numbers appear to be from 1945 - ??

Love the old machines! So cool!! You have one of the ones that people still want. One just sold on eBay for $235.00 with free shipping, which means the SELLER paid the shipping, which probably took $50 off the value. This would be TODAY's market value.

(235-50=185) is today's value. They go up and down in price depending on everything you have with your machine--this one that sold had a lot of gee gaws and such.

Accessories increase the value. IF you are trying to sell it, sometimes you can make MORE money selling it off piece by piece--meaning the feet and such as one "lot", the machine as another auction, the manual as a third, etc. Even the case can be sold separately if you have a case or stand or table.

I have done it both ways--and sometimes the latter is better since sometimes people want accessories but not the whole thing.

Post back if you keep or sell and if you sell, what you fetch for it!!
