 This machine is a very nice and shiny, but does have the usual pin scratches as well as a wearing of the clear coat around the needle plate and some wear of the decals on the leading edge, as seen in the above photo

This machine was totally cleaned and adjusted and oiled.  It was originally an electric machine, but the wiring was "rotten" so it was removed and a spoked flywheel added.   You could put into your treadle cabinet or into a case and install your own handcrank mechanism.

It was also tested by a quilter and sews a beautiful stitch as shown in the photo below:
