Thanks for your question. My name is***** will be a pleasure to help you. Please do not click RATE/ACCEPT/FEEDBACK until you have an answer/value.
Based on the information I have and the details you have supplied I believe that your piano has a current value in the $9,000 to $10,500 range for a private sale.
Yamaha pianos are very well respected in the USA and sell for good prices, so based on your piano being in, as you say ''mint condition'', then a figure in that range should be achievable.
