I have a beautiful 1921 Ivers and Pond baby grand. How much

Customer Question

Hello I have a beautiful 1921 Ivers and Pond baby grand. How much does it go for? Original ivory keys and i think the soundboard is brand new
JA: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Tell us what else you do know and the Musical Instrument Appraiser will be able to better assist you.
Customer: this is all I know. It sounds great and the wood is in good condition, the hammers, everything.
JA: I love the notion of my brother's old guitar having a history and belonging to someone famous. Maybe you have something valuable or historical. Let's find out. Is there anything else the Musical Instrument Appraiser should be aware of?
Customer: no

Hello,

My name is ***** ***** I'm happy to help.

If your piano has been regularly tuned and is in fully restored condition, its current retail (replacement or insurance) value is approximately $25,000. If you were to sell it, you could expect to get the fair market (private sale or auction) value of approximately 40% of the retail amount or $10,000, depending on location and actual condition.

I hope this answer has been helpful to you.
