Hi, thanks for your question. I'm working on this now.

Thanks for your patience. I have found this piano to have been built in 1934 based on the serial. Because of the missing ivory as well as the condition you describe, one would not consider it in good condition. Age alone would warrant a "fair to poor" condition rating as the mechanical parts have significant age and wear. Because of this reason, pianos decline in value as they age (depreciation). Considering the maker, size, age, condition and used piano market, I would suggest a selling range of your piano today at approximately $2,300-$2,800 in a private sale. Best wishes!
