Thanks for your question. My name is***** will be a pleasure to help you.

The serial number dates your Baldwin Console Upright to !990, so it is 25 years old. This is a 42 inch high upright, the current models are slightly taller.

I am assuming that your piano has been regularly tuned, maintained and generally in good condition. Therefore from the the information I have, the details you have provided, the size, make and age of your Piano, I believe it has a value in the $1,800 to $2,400 range for a private sale. If are selling to a Dealer then it would be up to 30% less than the average of this price range.
