Hi,
This is Wayne I am a verified expert in musical instruments and I can help you with this.
Krakauer Brothers were established in 1869 by Simon Krakauer and his son David. The company was based in New York City. Then in 1977 Howard K Graves purchased the company and moved it to Berlin. OH. Later purchased by kimbal and ceased production in 1985. According to the serial number your piano was built in 1962 I would sell for $500 - $800 at auction and on the second hand market.
Thank you,
Wayne
