Thanks for the photos. Based on those, the condition would be considered "fair" and would be consistent with a piano of this age. Upright players were built in high numbers prior to 1930 and many still remain today. There are always a high number on the used market. Considering the poor condition of the player action, the value will be a little lower. In the current market, I would suggest a selling range of $300-$600. Best wishes!
