My name is***** have been dealing in and appraising Musical Instruments for over 40 years, and I can help you with this. According to the serial number your piano was made in 1914. These were built by Baldwin. Assuming that your piano is in good playable condition, it would sell for $400-600 at auction and on the secondary market.

Thank you,
