I have been dealing in Featherweights for many years and I have never seen the cosmetically perfect "10"---I don't believe it exists.
But please keep in mind that every Featherweight that has been used, no matter how infrequently or how carefully, will display some signs of use---minor pin marks, small paint chips or scrapes, some loss to the gold decaling, etc.If you are not sure which machine will best suit your needs call and I can help you determine that as well.All of the Singer Featherweight sewing machines listed below have been fully serviced in our workshop---full inspected, cleaned, oiled, lubricated, adjusted, and sew-tested---before being offered for sale.These machines are 50-70 years old, and some wear, however little, is always evident, even on the nicest of them."Shelf" wear occurs over a period of time, even if the machine is left undisturbed and unused in the case.
