Purchased The Free No. 5 at yard sale for $40. Serial #C2423C5. (Possibly c242305 - "C" at end of serial number could possibly be a 0.)
Patent dates on top throat plate are listed from FEB 11 02 to MAY 20 13. Bullet shuttle, long bobbin. Decals are in very good condition. Machine sews good stitches. I would like to know date of manufacture and if a service manual is available. Machine is in a wooden portable case.
