This is an extremely rare, 1933 Singer Featherweight with a red Chicago Century of Progress badge. 3,519th off the production line. We replaced the crumbling belt in order to test the machine which ran beautifully with a new foot pedal. We did not test the original foot pedal which looks to be in very good condition.
