Thanks for your question! This piano dates to 1934 based on the serial you provided. Ivers and Pond was a well known American company though they have been out of business for many years now. Because of the old age of the instrument, it is at a point where most of its value is gone. Pianos lose value as they age because of the decline in mechanical condition that happens over time. Based on the information provided and considering the used piano market, I would recommend a selling range today of approximately $2,000-$2,700 in a private sale. Best wishes!
