Hi, thanks for your question!Old upright pianos are generally worth much less than newer ones due to the age of the mechanical parts and wear on the instrument itself. I'm glad your tuner commented that the condition is good for its age, that is helpful. An old upright piano in good original condition can still make a useful instrument today. Based on your description of condition and age, and based on recent comparable sales, I would recommend a current value of approximately $200-$500 depending on market.
