I have decided to sell it but I purchased it to enjoy and didn't do any research on it. So I don't know how old it is - a have an interested buyer and she is asking the age too. Thank you!

Thanks for your patience. Unfortunately, the number you provided is not the serial. It should be inside the piano on the metal area near the strings and tuning pins. Ludwig serial numbers were only into the low 100,000's. I'm having to log off for a bit but will check back later in the afternoon. Thanks!
