Customer Question

I believe I have a 1910 Smith &Barnes cabinet grand piano, it does not play and looks pretty rough. Would it still have any value?

Hi, thanks for your question!
Sorry, but in the condition you describe, the piano would have no value. Old uprights in good overall condition usually are worth only a couple hundred dollars. They are valued based on mechanical condition rather than any antique value. Sorry for the bad news but hope the info is helpful. Best wishes!
