Thanks for your patience!
I've checked serial number records and find yours was built in 1913. While you list condition as "mint" it's important to understand that as pianos age they decline in mechanical condition unl ess rebuilding has taken place. This decline over time is factored into value depreciation.
That said, a vintage Steinway M in good original condition would do well on the used market. As described above, and based on the used market, I would recommend a selling range of approximately $7,000-$9,000 in a private sale. Best wishes!
