Default Regina 1952 Seamstress machine

Anyone have info on this machine? My wife had this stored in the garage
for years...inside the box is very clean, carrying box is rough on the
outside. Wanting to know if this has enough value to pack it up & send
to my wifes surviving daughter. It is heavy.

TIA

Since no expert has waded in, I'll offer my off-the-cuff opinion. A
google search turned up a similar machine offered at a Goodwill
store three years ago for U.S. $30.00.
http://www.shopgoodwill.com/auctions...e-9637379.html

The auction ended, it does not indicate whether the machine sold or
not.

None show up in an eBay search, and I don't find any collectors
groups pining for that machine.

Having been stored "for years" in a garage (without proper
maintenance and lubrication?) does not bode well for the condition
of the machine. Unless it has high sentimental value to your wife's
daughter, I doubt it is worth the cost of shipping.

Thank you, I had the same thought about it. No Ebay presence says either
"very rare" or "nobody cares". I don't think it was ever an expensive
machine...at any age. Maybe good for a donation.

If your daughter loves it, it would probably be worth shipping, one
cannot put a price on memories.

Good luck,
