I realize bobbin plates for this machine are readily available, but my 15-30 is from 1906, and not in great shape.  So I definitely don't want "new", or "perfect".  More like "really old looking", "thought about throwing it away".

The needle plate has lost much of its plating, and is a little dull, so it would be best if the bobbin plate matched, at least a bit.  Even "was rusted and is a bit pitted" would be okay.  The decals aren't so hot either.  :-)

The presser foot adjuster should also not be at all "shiny" -- the tops of the needle and presser foot bars are brown.  I think you're starting to get the picture.
