Hi, my name is*****'m a certified appraiser, and I'd be happy to help.

Is this a grand, baby grand, or upright?

I guess an upright what is the difference it's what you would find in music class in jr. High
Expert:  jennem22 replied 2 months ago.

This piano dates to 1966.

The difference is that grand, and baby grand, pianos do retain value over time. They continue to be desirable, as they are much higher quality instruments.

Uprights from the mid 20th century, on the other hand, have extremely low resale values.

At most, this would have a resale value of $500, but it may be difficult to get even that much. I'm sorry I don't have better news about value.
