Centennial badged machines are part of a special, small group of 221 Featherweights that had commemorative badges. The Centennial badged machine was in celebration of Singer's 100th anniversary. Other commemorative badged machines include ones for the 1933/1934 Chicago Worlds Fair, the Texas Centennial Exhibition in 1936 and the Golden Gate Exposition in San Francisco in 1939/1940. The red "S" badged machines were not commemorative badged machines.
