You must be asking yourself, Why did Singer Customer Service for all these years, and even today, give out the incorrect information?The simple answer is they don't know themselves.They are using the Elizabeth, NJ "Year of Issue" of NA-1951, NB-1956 and NC-1961, each having 1 million serial numbers allotted during those years.How Singer can still claim today that all "NA" serial numbers, with 4 different sewing machine models, all being made in the same year, "Year of Issue - NA-1951" is confusing to everyone.It is therefore my goal to establish a database of serial numbers for all Slant-needle models and create the most accurate "Year of Issue" as possible, the year your sewing machine was actually made.The database includes, model, color, serial number, short or long bed, original purchase receipts, instruction manual copyright date and revised dates, other owner information.If the owner of any Slant-needle model sewing machine inputs their Serial Number they will receive a certificate, but guess what?
Singer along with the Berlin-based agency "Culture Management Berlin" created a database of Singer sewing machine world productions in 2000 and 5 years later the list was finally finished and published in 2005.
The only record from the Anderson factory is from 1951, that's all.
What happened to the 1952-1963 Series Register Numbers log books is still a mystery, but one story, that just might be true, is they were burned in an office fire.
A joint licensing agreement for offering this entire database on the Internet, print media is only between the Culture Management Berlin [Germany] and the Singer Corporation NV [USA]. The only production records from the Anderson factory is the "NA" Series Register Numbers in 1951 when a limited edition of only 10,000 Singer Model 301 sewing machines were allotted for Singer's 100th Anniversary.
Licenses can be purchased only through the agency "Culture Management Berlin". There are no other Series Register Numbers from 1952 to 1963.
