Can you supply the serial number and a photo of the piano?

the serial number is *****

Thanks for the info! This piano was built in 1950 and judging from the photo, it is a spinet upright. Spinets were the smallest type of upright made and they cost the least compared to others. Their sound was lacking in volume and tone due to the short length of bass strings and small size of the soundboard. Based on the photo and the used piano market, you could expect to sell today for approximately $400-$600. Best wishes!
