This 1951 Centennial edition 221 Singer Featherweight runs very quietly and sews beautifully. The finish is bright and shiny. The decals, with the exception of a small amount of wear on the front bed decal, are a bright golden color.
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.

The serial number of this Featherweight is AK437608 which dates the machine to May 10, 1951.
All of the Featherweights that we sell have been thoroughly cleaned, serviced, lubricated and tested. The testing consists of the machine going through a final 8 point checklist before being listed. The checklist is given toward the end of the listing description.
There are no missing or broken parts, no grunge to try to remove, and no expensive repairs to be done.

The light and switch both work as does the bobbin winder and the foot control.
