Well, I just purchased an old player piano and it works

Customer Question

well, I just purchased an old player piano and it works great. It has a plate inside that says "MALCOLM MANUFACTURED FOR THE KNIGHT CAMPBELL MUSIC CO. ESTABLISHED 1874
JA: I love the notion of my brother's old guitar having a history and belonging to someone famous. Maybe you have something valuable or historical. Let's find out. Tell us what else you do know and the Musical Instrument Appraiser will be able to better assist you.
Customer: I would love to trace the History of this Piano. I have a serial number I believe #10237 or #10237 2
JA: Is there anything else the Musical Instrument Appraiser should be aware of?
Customer: It looks great and sounds great. Is there anything else I need to do. Do I leave this page?
