You have a model 221 which was made on May 24, 1938 at the Elizabethport factory in Elizabethport, New Jersey. There were 20,000 of those made during that particular run which may have been over a few days.
Its value depends on its overall condition and what someone is willing to pay for it. Sight unseen, I would estimate market value for that machine in good running order at between $250 and $400.

The Singer 15-91 is a cabinet straight (lock) stitch sewing machine; usually it was for home user's. Multiple feet were available for it. Since Singer started making machines in 1871, it isn't that old. The model was sold in the 1940s and 1950s. The manual for the Singer 15-91 is available from the Singer site, http://www.singerco.com/accessories/instruction-manuals . Enter the model number and click Search. The direct link to the PDF of the manual is http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/8d903d48695caade8f297664674de354a175ca4c.pdf . You can also buy a copy of the manual from the site. A portion of the adjustment/repair manual is here: http://parts.singerco.com/IPinstManuals/15-91.pdf . If you look for your machine's serial number, you can find out exactly when your machine was built. Go to http://www.singermachines.co.uk/faq/singer-sewing-machine-company-history/ and scroll to the bottom of the page. Use the serial number to determine which link will provide the age of your machine. (No letters, one letter or two letters at the start of the serial number are common.) The position of the serial number varies with the age of the machine but is usually on the front or side (motor side of the machine).
I hope this helps.

looks like the Vihl Pederson model 308 is a manual machine also known as a Junker Ruh. The title page on the PDF gives another number but the body of text talks about the Model 308. Have fun.

Ebay also has listings for these old machines. You can get a rough estimate of what yours might be worth. Some times they have the old manuals and dress making guides for sale. This link might help you find the correct manual
