I got both of these for free today. As far as I know, they are all original besides one of the bags and one of the plugs. Each one runs absolutely flawlessly and they are very powerful. Each also has a two speed switch. I am not sure which bag they are supposed to have...

The front. The plate moves to the side for attachment use I believe.

It does not have a brushroll. I thought they did at first when I was getting them out of the rafters, but they are straight suction with a row of bristles under it

Attached are some photos of my old Regina Crown that I dearly love and cherish. They were neat machines.

I also had one of these types of Reginas once upon a time. Funny looking thing straight on from the front but beautiful in profile. It had good pick-up for a straight suction machine. Stan Kann said it was due to the very narrow nozzle. Mine was a Model 59. Had a tan bag with red and silver lettering, brown wheels (the rear wheels being large bakelight with a pattern similar to tortoise-shell) and a red bumper around the front of the nozzle. The first model of this type came out in the mid 1930s and it's stunning. There's a large Regina logo across the front in deeply raised lettering.
