A joint licensing agreement for offering this entire database on the Internet, print media is only between the Culture Management Berlin [Germany] and the Singer Corporation NV [USA]. The only production records from the Anderson factory is in 1951 when a limited edition of only 10,000 Singer Model 301 sewing machines were manufactured for the Centennial Year Celebration.
Licenses can be purchased only through the agency "Culture Management Berlin". There are absolutely no production records from 1952 to 1963.
When it comes to Anderson, South Carolina Singer only lists 3 Years of Issue for all NA, NB and NC serial numbers that include Models 301, 301A, 401A, 403A, 500A and 503A.
These years are not completely accurate and are only the years of the entire allotted serial numbers; NA-1951, NB-1956 and NC-1961.
Case in point--the other day I clicked on a Craigslist ad saying only "Singer sewing machine" and saw this photo: The photo's small, dark, shot from a weird angle and shows no detail, but I immediately knew it was a model 99.
(I later e-mailed the woman and she confirmed it.) How did I know? You can learn to identify different models of Singer, even through lousy photos, by a series of curves and visual clues.
It is therefore my goal to establish a database of serial numbers for the above models and create an accurate Year of Issue, which is the year of manufacture or year your sewing machine was actually made.
Prior to the late 1950's, most Singer machines DID NOT have the Model Number anywhere on the machine, thereby making it very difficult to identify.You have indicated that the Tension Adjustment Knob is on the Left Side of the Head pointing LEFT.You most likely have a Model 15 Series machine but there are several styles which we now have to determine.You can try visiting your nearest BERNINA store to find out if they can help, you might get lucky and find an authorized BERNINA Technician that's been around forever and knows all about the older models.Or you can look at this brief history of BERNINA sewing machines at to see if you can find a similar model to yours.
