This was my first online SM purchase in Jan 2002.  The precision fit and smooth operation of the F&R is what really got my attention of these old machines.  This one makes a very nice stitch with very little effort cranking.

I failed with the lighting when taking the pics today and the decals appear to be faded but they are not.

Wow, MOP F&R's are pretty uncommon!  This F&R was the first "Victorian" machine in my collection

That's a nice one Steve!  The F&R's seem to be the smoothest operating machines from that era that I've experienced.  Something about German engineering maybe. Think Mercedes, Porsche, BMW, Frister & Rossmann!  LOL

I agree.  My Wife's machine is a 1925 F&R Model E "Naked Lady" machine.  It is truly the smoothest sewing machine I have EVER used, with fully synchronized reverse...
