Asian 15

#138472, courtesy of Jason Nay. This Asian made Singer 15 has the new, glossy Sphinx decals, a plastic knob to drop the feed dogs (which is prone to breaking) and a modern Red Singer 'S' logo on the pillar. The stitch length lever is black colored, the rear inspection plate has a striated pattern.

These Singers are NOT reproductions, NOT "clones", NOT "replicas" NOR "copies", as is often said in various sewing machine interest groups. As far as anyone is aware the production of this model, the most successful and long running in Singer's history, has never stopped. Indeed the model is still manufactured by Singer and sold as Singer. Although the model has improvements on much older models, the quality is inferior (as with most things these days). Topic 1 and Topic 2.
