Here is a very rare Singer 226U3 Sewing Machine made in the 1960s in the Utsunomiya factory, Japan. Not very many of these machines were made and very few made it to the states, this machine came out of the estate of a military family that was stationed in Japan. Condition is excellent with minimal wear present, please see our high resolution photos.The machine runs strong and switches between straight stitch and the pattern disks. We are not sewing machine experts but we do not believe there are any issues, it is possible so adjustment/ maintenance may need done after prolonged storage. The case shows some wear from storage but it has done a fabulous job of protecting the machine. It looks like all accessories are present including the 6 pattern wheels.
