Singer Serial Numbers Revealed: How Old Is Your Sewing Machine?

how old is your singer sewing machine

Singer sewing machines have a long and rich history, dating as far back as 1851. These beautiful machines have evolved over the years but are still standing the test of time. Some of the older models are highly sought after by collectors and sewing enthusiasts. If you’ve nabbed one of these beautiful bargains at a local market, it’s worth identifying the age and model of your machine. You might have picked up a rare antique.

Whether you want to pick up one of your own older models because you love the history, aesthetic or nostalgia of the piece, they’re easily still found on the market if you know what you’re looking for. So, how old is my Singer sewing machine? To identify when a model was made, you need to first find the Singer sewing machine serial number. It’s near the on/off switch on newer machines, and on the front panel or on a small plate on older machines.

Once you’ve found the number, match it to the date in our chart to discover the age of your machine

Why do Singer Sewing Machines have Serial Numbers?

Singers have always been marked with serial numbers ever since production began. Each number is corresponding to a model from a certain date, and even location. All Singer sewing machines up until 1900 have no letter prefix, and came from all around the world. The Singer company eventually managed their production from all their factories to match up with the serial number flow.

How to choose a valuable model

The first thing to look for if you’re after a collector’s Singer machine, is the age of the item. Over 100 years old is considered an antique, and younger than that is ‘vintage’. By matching the serial number to the corresponding date, you can determine the exact age of the machine.

Quality also plays an important part in the value of the model. As expected, high quality, functioning machines are more sought after than damaged ones and tend to be a better option. Machines that don’t function at all may not be worth collecting. However, if you find a damaged machine that can be repaired, it may still be a worthwhile purchase.

From a collector’s viewpoint, there are a select amount which are valuable enough to be classed as real collectors’ items. This includes any of the machines that come with their own table, blacksides which have a black instead of polished finish, and the vintage 221 and 222 Featherweight models. These rare models can fetch around £500 or even more, if they’re in perfect working order.

The History of Singer Sewing Machines

The Singer brand is synonymous with being the best in the business.  After opening a local factory in Glasgow, in 1867, the machines were flying off the shelves. Popularity only grew and factories opened worldwide. By World War 2, the Singers were actually producing guns and bullets as a priority to sewing machines. They only continued making those in their spare time. Isaac Singer was the founder of the company, and the first to create treadle powered, belt powdered and eventually electricity powered sewing machines. Isaac Singer boasts a unique story, and was a pioneer of the sewing industry. Funnily enough, with an ‘enthusiastic’ approach to women, Isaac even hired female demonstrators to disprove that women were too incompetent to work a machine. This enthusiastic approach to women continued into his private life, where he had a total of 24 children!

Designs Throughout The Years

Singer treadle sewing machines are one of the most popular Singer antiques. They are still found in auctions and antique dealers today. These older machines were made of heavy duty components and replaceable parts. So they are still used, and are incredibly long-lasting. A treadle sewing machine is powered by a foot pedal, and runs mechanically by the user pushing back and forth on the pedal. A reliable, eco-friendly machine, many sewers still prefer to use this type of model today.

The design has naturally changed over the years with advances in technology. Electric motors and bolt-on lights were introduced to the machines in 1921. The treadle tables gradually faded away to chunky box bottoms in the 1930s. Use of new materials throughout the 20th century made the design sleeker and lighter, and allowed for new functions to be introduced.

Today’s Singers

Today’s machine can cost from as little as £85 up to £1300, depending on the functions and type of machine. But why is Singer so popular? It’s not only due to the rich history, but the fact that they cater to all sewing needs. Singer has a reputation for creating innovative machines. They were the first to ever introduce electric, zigzag and electronic machines which were targeted to the home sewing market. Offering affordable machines with a multitude of features which are readily available, made them likely the most popular brand out there.

Whether you’re a beginner or a professional, want an electronic or a mechanical machine, work with embroidery or patchwork, there’s something for everyone. Every model has a unique range of useful functions such as automatic needle threaders and even LCD screens, which is part of what makes the brand the go-to for sewers.

  • The Singer history is fascinating. Great to find a chart! My model is AD181298 and is written in French. This number doesn’t come up on your chart, but it’s between 1900 and 1942 I guess?

  • I’m sorry but I do not understand your chart. My serial number begins with a G and then seven numbers, I don’t see that on your chart. I see GA but no G
    Any assistance that you could give me would be much appreciated. I need to find an owners manual and a new cord.
    Thank You

  • I picked up an old singer at a odd and ends shop. The serial number, which is located on the top under the gold Singer emblem. I do not see it on your chart. The number is AD745900. Is that the serial number and if it is could you tell me the age? It is in beautiful and looks similar to the model on your website above, the one with the red fabric.

    Thank you

  • I have an old Singer serial # ADC 62518, motor # 48 8013, 100-110 volts 0.6AMP, DC 7 25 to 75 cycles, Catalog B.U.7–E. It is in a cabinet with a knee bar used to run the motor. It is NOT a treadle. I would like to give it to a young girl to use. Is it possible to have it fixed to running order? We have a singer store close to us but I thought I would do some research before I sent it in to them. I assume they will tell me they can’t fix it. Thank you!

    Thank you for your article.

  • My mom has this type of sewing machine,when she was still an adult, the last time she used the singer sewing machine was like im not so sure,but ever since i know the machine it has never been used, its a bit rusty now but.

  • Hi Melody, really interesting read, thank you! Age chart very useful too except that my machine doesn’t start with any of the letter prefixes suggested – begins with a single Y then 7 numbers… does this mean it’s pre-1900 or just a random one that slipped through in the 1900’s? Your help would be much appreciated. Thank you

  • I have a singer sewing machine with a serial number on a plate, which would indicate that it is older. However, the number is preceded by the letter G. Using the chart, I could not determine the age. Could you help me out?

  • https://www.contrado.co.uk/blog/category/how-to/
    I am trying to estimate how old my grandmother’s Singer sewing machine is but did not see the same model in the pictures. Model # JA381183 appears to be 1924. It seems to be a portable machine with a curved wooden box cover. The other distinguishing note is the metal bar that fits on the right side of the machine to start and stop. It is controlled by the operator’s leg.

  • Hello and thanks for the useful, no, brilliant information. !! I collect old Singer machines and the clones here in France…Interesting hobby for an old engineer.
    I have been told that the K on for example 19K comes from the plant at Kilmarnock in Scotland. No sure about this but as you say machines were made in Scotland.
    Machines here in France are generally clones, but there are many very old French makes.

    Thanks once again for all the info and taking the time to put it all together

  • Thank you for this nice blog on the Singer sewing machine. I hope you can help — I have an old Singer I just love, only I can’t identify the model and I don’t see the listing in your chart. I looks almost exactly like the one at the beginning of your blog (with the red thread and red material), but you didn’t list the model. Mine is electric and has reverse sewing with a number plate: G4661343. Engraved on the bobbin plate are several patent dates, the last one is June, 14, 1910.

  • I’m so excited because my mom surprised me & had my grandmother’s treadle sewing machine cabinet refinished. It is gorgeous! As a young girl I remember being intrigued by it. Grandma Ingrid would let me pump the pedal & I’d play with her spools of thread & fabic swatches. I’ve been wondering how old it actually is and would like to refurbish the sewing machine itself. I did Google the serial # (G0123537) and I think it was manufacturered around 1940, but I’m not sure. I’d love to learn more about its history, get “her” manual & find out how to get her functioning again! The more I look at it and discover new things about it, the more excited I get. “She” seems to be coming alive! Any suggestions about how to get her refurbished?
    “She” lives in Northwestern Minnesota & is happy to be out of the shed & into a new home!

  • Hi, I just found out that my Singer sewing machine I inherited from my late mother, was manufactured in 1937 and that makes it 81 years old now, but still rocking it.

    Unfortunately I had to attached a motor to run it electrically since I’m already 65yo, and paddling it tires me a lot.

    Hope it’ll go on rocking for another 81 years..

  • Hi Melody,
    I have a Singer Sewing Machine that I know for a fact was made between 1851 and 1870. I have a file with the serial numbers and since the logs were lost between those years, I know my number is from those years. The serial number is 00491203. The research I did shows if there are no letters in the serial number you can be sure it was manufactured prior to 1900. Just curious of what you think I should do.

One of the symbols appears to be like an Egyptian Spinks.

  • I have a Singer woodworking machine with the words Singer Hobbies in big letters wrote across the side of the treadle, the machine has a lathe & a saw. The metal treadle is roughly twice the size of a Singer sewing machine, I read Singer made these machines in the States years ago before they branched into sewing machines.
    We like the metal treadle & will convert the machine into a metal sink base if there is no value in it, if anyone has any info on these old machine called they let me know.
    Thank you Kim

  • Hi, I have an old singer sewing machine in a cabinet. my mother had it in Tanzania East Africa in 1962 and brought it to England in 1970. The Cabinat has a stamp saying “COMPAGNIA SINGER – MILANO” COLLAUDO MOBIL! MACHINE PER CUCIRE DATED 18 OTT 1962 AND A NUMBER SAYING 7996. There are various numbers on the machine 1. 199297
    2. 401G
    3. 172028
    4. 161608
    5. 1706 506? Do not know which is the serial number
    It’s a beautiful caninet. The Top cover opensout and the bottom door rests under it and the machine pulls out to sit upright. with a foot movement and an electric power from socket from side of the machine.
    I am trying to find out the age of the machine and what it might cost, if you can kindly tell me.
    Many Thanks
    Sylvia
