Hi,My name is***** have been dealing in and appraising musical instrments for over 40 years, and I can help you with this. According to the serial number, your piano was built circa 1928. Please tell me the length of your piano? Thanks,Wayne

Wayne,It is approximately 69"L x 58-1/2"W. Inside the date says patented Oct. 7, 1917 with Dec.20 1921 beneath it. My father had the original chat with John and forwarded it to me. When I responded and paid the $35 it was under his email address. My email is***@******.*** so you can directly talk with me regarding questions. Were you able to open the pictures?Sincerely,
Joy Vickery

Hi,The patent dates are earlier than this piano. This a beautiful piano in excellent condition in Philippine Mahogany. This would sell for $3000-4000 at auction and on the secondhand market and insurance value is $7000.Thank you,Waynr
