Vintage Sewing Machine - Thrifty find

A lucky trip to Goodwill resulted in this find! A 1913 Brunswick by Montgomery Ward. I paid  $12.99 for it.  I have no idea what's it's worth today, but it will live happily on display in my sewing room for years to come. I hope to get it working again.
According to the International Sewing Machine Collectors' Society (ISMCS), this little machine was one of Montgomery Ward's "better grade" machines, and was manufactured by National Sewing Machine Company in 1913. The ‘Brunswick’, is a high-arm machine, with a bobbin ‘that always works in a satisfactory manner’ - good to know! The machine cost between $12.95 and $17.85 at the time.
