Bernina 1320's current value. Mom died and we want to know what it is worth.

Sorry to hear that news :>(

That particular model is not listed on eBay, but take a look to see if there is anything similar. $200 to $400 looks about right.

What is the current value of a Bernina 1030 in good condition

Difficult to say as there is a lot that goes into valuation, ie accessories/user manual included, number of stitches logged, physical condition, operating condition, where is it located...

Check eBay for current or recent posts. You can also join Yahoo's group "BerninaThirtySomethings" to get any additional information.

I need a value for the replacement cost of a Bernina sewing machine - reasonably good model - the current one is a very old one (belongs to my Mom) - need this for insurance purposes

You can check eBay to see what similar Berninas are selling for--remember that the condition, accessories, etc. all are part of the price. (Be sure to check the machines that have sold as that will tell you more about its value.) You can also try contacting the Bernina dealer in your area.

How much can I charge for a good second hand Bernina Nova 900

The value of your machine is whatever the market will stand and in times of high inflation, such as in the early 1990's some used gear was selling for more than the original purchase price, however this situation is highly unusual.

Much of the original purchase price is the value of the warranty, without which the risk to a prospective purchaser is much increased and the value is decreased.
You don't say how old the machine is or how much use it has had but if it is two or three years old and little used and still in excellent cosmetic order and you are willing to demonstrate it working i would say it is worth about half the current price of an equivalent new model. You would of course ask for about two-thirds in the expectation a buyer will haggle. Of course that is assuming there aren't a lot of similar machines being advertised cheaper and my opinion could need adjusting up or down to suit the local market.

What is the difference between a bernina record 930 and just a bernina 930

At the present time, Bernina 930 Record and Bernina 930 are the same machine. Although, technically the name is Bernina 930 Record, referring to the mostly mechanical sewing machine produced in the 1980's. They are very coveted machines and one of the more popular models.

However, Bernina has, in the past few years, begun producing computerized machines and labeling them with the same numbers of older mechanical machines (makes things very confusing), ie Bernina 830 Record vs Bernina 830 computerized model. At this point in time, Bernina has not yet produced a computerized 930.
