What if the serial number starts with two letters. How old will it be?

Serial numbers on Singer sewing machines manufactured prior to 1900 have numbers only. After 1900 the machine serial numbers have a single or two-letter prefix. This table will tel you the age of machine that have serial numbers starting with two letters.

The late 50's and early 60's are referred to the golden age of sewing machines, not because of any one particular ground breaking model, although there were a few, but because of the incredibly high sales for any and all machines. Every company that was involved in their manufacture thrived during this time period, as the insatiable need for sewing new clothing and repairing old clothing outstripped demand. The resale value for must sewing machine made around this time are not as valuable as they look, however, don't get me wrong... who's to know what the future trends will become.
