Singer 221 and 222K Featherweight Serial Number Prefixes

Almost all Singer Featherweights, both models 221 and 222K, have a serial number that begins with an "A" or an "E".

Useless Information About the Featherweight Badge Pins.

Canadian and UK Singer machines, both 221 and 222K Featherweights, have badge pins that have a fancy rosette pin head. Like I said, useless, but maybe interesting information for Featherweight junkies.

Black Featherweights were not produced after 1961 so for any year after that you are also out of luck. Between 1933 and 1957 just over 1.75 million US model Singer 221 Featherweights were produced with some years having over 200,000...
