Customer Question

I have a Schaeffer's Chicago Piano (Paris Exposition 1878 Diploma of Honor - ?). Serial # ***** ***** It belonged to my great grandparents. Thinking about selling but have no idea if it has any financial value. If not I may keep in the family or donate to church. Your assistance is greatly appreciated. Thank U in advance.

Are you able to attach photos showing inside and outside of the piano?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I can take some pictures. Probably could not get them to U until tonight. Can U give me an idea/range for selling price.
Expert:  Tyler, MM, AAGO replied 2 years ago.
That would be fine. You're likely looking at no more than a few hundred dollars but I could be more precise with photos of it.
