I'm taking a road trip across Idaho to pick up this machine tomorrow, and I'm practically giddy with excitement!

I love the arched back of that White machine.  It's so graceful and pretty unique looking!  Congratulations Angela!  It's beautiful.

I am so thrilled with this machine. Everything about it is in such incredible condition! It has what I'm pretty sure is a complete manual, pages 1 thru 36, and I'm almost positive it has all the accessories shown in the manual. I'll have to hunt down the folks on Facebook who can date it.

Ditto this!!!

Interesting assortment of bobbins - LOL.

Is that at darning egg with the treadle belt in the first set of pictures?

According to http://www.treadleon.net/WhiteSM/whites.html
"VS - the White VS was introduced in 1876. Books credit it through the 1880's but White records show it continuing into the 1900's. VS I has round tension on upper arm. VS II came out in the 1880's. "

So probably 1876-1880?

Right?!! I had to laugh at the bobbins, but I have all those machines, so...

Yes, it is a darning egg! And it's full of sewing machine needles!

Thanks for the info. 😊
