Thanks for your question! Unfortunately, because of the very old age and cracked sound board, this piano would be considered in "Poor" condition by piano appraisal standards. For an old piano to just be playable is not sufficient to warrant a better rating. Pianos have a lifespan of around 70 years before often needing mechanical rebuilding which is why the older instruments sell for very little. Because of the condition of yours, I would suggest a selling range of up to $100, though you may find difficulty selling. Sorry for the bad news but hope this helps you sort things out. Best wishes!
