Thanks for your question. My name is***** will be a pleasure to help you. Please do not click the RATE/ACCEPT/FEEDBACK button until you have an answer/valuation. Is this a 150th Anniversary model 'S' Grand in the Crown Jewels Collection dated to circa 2003? Could I please have the serial number to confirm the year of build and any other information and /or pictures please.

140th anniversary signed by van cliburn
Expert:  John, CT ABRSM replied 1 year ago.
Thank you for the information. Based on the details, this piano was built circa 1993, so it is in the order of 22 years old. The current new price for a Model S Steinway Baby Grand is from around $58,000 to $89,000 depending on the actual style and type of finish on the casework. The signature of the famous pianist Van Cliburn, whilst enhancing the sales potential, does not in itself add a great deal to the value. Based on the information I have to hand, I believe this piano has a value in the $24,000 to $28,000 range. Thank you for using JustAnswer.
