Thank you for the information.
From this maker’s records the serial number you have listed gives a build year of 1972, so this instrument is in the order of 45 years old.
Generally pianos have a life span of around 60 years mainly due to the wear during use and natural deterioration of the mechanical parts over time, such as the action, the strings, the soundboard, the tuning pins, the pin block, etc. Whilst the outside casework condition, and style can have an influence on the value particularly when selling, the overriding factors in any appraisal valuation is the type, standard and age of the internal mechanics.
At 45 inches high it is classed as a Studio Piano.
Therefore based on the information I have, plus that which you have provided, I believe your 1972 Baldwin Hamilton Studio Upright Piano has a value of $1,700 to $2,200 in terms of a private sale.
I work as an independent qualified expert and spend a considerable amount of time working on questions and responding to Customers. I do not set the values of musical instruments, I report on values generally in the industry, values I have found on similar instruments, taking into account condition and rarity together with my expertise and years of experience. I complete research through my own extensive records, books and other sources to which, as a professional, I have access and I often have to pay for important information in order to complete these appraisals. Therefore may I now ask you to please click on the star rating system at the top of the question to rate my work as an expert (this is not a rating on the value I have given) to complete the process, which means that I receive a percentage payment based on the amount you agreed when you first posted this question. I strive to give a 5 star service. If you need any more help or explanations, I am very happy to continue our discussion on here. Many thanks.
