I have an 1898 Singer treadle style Sewing Machine Model 27 Vibrating Shuttle number 2. It is the type with an extension that folds out and the machine is stored inside the base. I also have the little wooden box with all of the attachments, the foot and the thing that measures the seam allowance, two bobbins and a small Singer envelope with three needles. There are also two instruction manuals. One original and one 1899 reprint. They are both missing pages and most of the pages are tattered and torn. The original is missing the cover. The wood top of the sewing machine needs refinishing but overall its in great condition. I have been trying to find out how much its worth, but all of the ones that I can find for sale don't say whether or not they have the accessories that mine has. Some are in worse condition others are refinished and most are different years. So I have no idea. If anyone knows please let me know.
