Thanks for the info and photos. Sorry but I can't place a call right now and there is an extra cost to that service. I'll go ahead and provide your answer though if you still want a call later I can submit a request to you for additional service.

In viewing the photos I see the piano is in poor condition. It is below average compare to other pianos at the time. I'm just assuming the player function does not currently work. Old pianos don't gain value just from being old like antiques, they actually lose value because the mechanical pieces wear out over time. The fact that this is a player helps with value a bit though condition hurts the overall price. In the current market I would recommend a price of under $200. I would advise trying to find someone who wants to just take it off your hands for free as it may be very difficult to actually find a buyer. Sorry for the bad news but hope it is helpful. Best wishes!
